Re: Leaf litter

About 40 seconds in the microwave works, too. I place them on a plate, sandwiched between two paper towels and that helps to absorb the moisture. Then let them air dry for a few minutes. If they are still not completely dried out, you can give them 20-30 additional seconds.

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

I've had three take shells and go to land. Two met untimely deaths (lots of pitfalls when you're that tiny), but one seems to be doing pretty well. Took a video of my setup and the little new guy to give a shot of size-perspective. http://maryakers.com/day-44/ I still have some stage five and severa...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Day 36. First megalopa takes a shell and climbs out of the water onto a rock!! I am so ridiculously excited!!! In the first photo, my finger is pointing to the shell to give you an idea of just how very small it is. The other picture I took with a clip-on iPhone macro lens. The megalopa is right at...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Thank you, fandt94. I'm really struggling with doubts today. Another one of those days in the process when I keep thinking, "Why did I ever think I could do this??" Ugh. I just need to keep trying. One foot in front of the other. My daughter's new business is wonderful. She opened a board game cafe ...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Day Thirty. Was gone for three days to attend the grand opening of my daughter's new business. My 22-year-old son was put in charge.

Right near the end of the video, when he rights himself and turns to look right at me, with eyes so much wider apart than the stage five zoeae, THAT'S when I started crying. :D
