Nice flowers which really benefit from the DC feature of the 105 :)

The reason(s) why I'm not as active as before on NG :)

The revision work at the Botanical Museum of Natural History, Oslo University, fills much of my time, thus little free time left. I'm currently at 40% of the total amount of specimens to examine. So expect to keep soldiering on for quite some time yet. Oh well.

My daily working place, with labels;

A: specimens needing further close examination, possibly involving microscopy of morphological features or pollen;
B: specimens currently waiting for examination;
C: specimens examined and verified, no further action is required;
D: specimens re-identified, new labels should be written and the finished specimen re-inserted at a new position in the herbarium collections;
E: one of many text-books to consult with;
F: Leica stereo binocular loupe, 6.3-40X magnification available

Not shown is Birna's stamina. I shall prevail.

Love the baby pictures, Fons.
