Find of the Day

We visited the lake yesterday and among the driftwood I found a very scruffy feather. First I was like "Oh look, a buzzard feather! What a pitty it's so washed up.", but then I had a closer look to it. For a buzzard feather it was too short and the colors/markings aren't buzzard-like either. There was also a kind of fluff on the feather surface... So, what does that mean? Exactly, it must be an owl feather!

I cleaned the feather at home and now it looks quite pretty again. I think it's a wing feather of a tawny owl. YAY! I rarely find owl feathers so I'm pretty happy about this one.

If you want to know how to clean and refresh scruffy feathers have a look over here.
And if you like to know hot to differ owl feathers from other bird feather look here.

Fossil Hunt

This time I did something new: I went on fossil hunt! Together with one of my best friends I explored the stone pit called "Schümel" in Holderbank (Aargau). I've never been there  before, I just got a hint by a foreign mineral enthusiast I met in the train a year ago. There were many questions in my head, like: How to find them? How do they look like? And what do I eat? Get the answers under the cut...

Summer Summary

September started but it's still like summer outdoors. I don't like to stroll arround when it's too hot. On those occasions I prefer to enjoy the beach or stay in the house instead. Anyhow, it's been a while since I wrote a new entry, so here you got a few pictures of animals and findings. Under the cut you go!

Treasures from Iceland

I always wanted to visit a Nordic country. Actually I wanted to go to Spitsbergen, but that was slightly a bit too expensive and I had to go alone, so I decided to visit Iceland with my beloved "Fennel" instead. Of course I found some souvenirs of the special kind. Let's check them out under the cut!

Spring Photo Post

Hokay hey dudes and ladydudes! Against all odds with that crazy weather (cold, warm, ice-cold, storm, summer etc.) I enjoyed my rare leisure time outdoors. Especially the snake pond was very attractive for me <3 I took a lot of pictures and I want to share these with you. So, fasten up and enjoy a spring photo post!

Ancient Chompers

Hello folks! Long time no see, eh? I have still pain in my hands, so there wasn't a chance to write some new entries, but today I'll give it a try.
I want to introduce you to my newest member of the collection, a fossil this time. But it isn't just an old animal part. It is from a very very VERY cool dinosaur... But more under the cut.
