Two Harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) in a pool at rescue center Lenie ‘t Hart. It’s already a couple of weeks ago since my visit to the rescue center, but the seals were great and the work that all volunteers do is really great!Of course I supported the center’s top work with some money by buying a shirt :)I can highly recommend everyone to go and see the seals at the center.Website: http://www.zeehondencreche.nl/wb/pages/nieuws.php?lang=NL(to switch to english: click on ‘English’ right)

Around one of the pools we’ve to do research to the amphibian population live a lot of vivparous lizards (Zootoca vivipara), made a lot of photos of this one because it posed so nice and only wanted to upload the nicest.. result is this photo, and have to say I like it!
Lizards are reptiles, not amphibians and although the focus of our research are amphibians and dragonflies.. you don’t see that much reptiles in The Netherlands.

We found two dragonflies on one day in the field last week, quite early for dragonflies because they need warm weather to survive. This one had just emerged from it’s larva stadium when we found it, thought this photo was a very nice one!
This dragonfly is a Ruddy Darter, or it’s scientific name is: Sympetrum sanguineum.

Some pictures I took a couple of weeks ago during days in our researchfield and on expedition with school. There are two more photos coming up that I do want to give some special attention because I proud and they’re special to me in some way.. those are the two I’m most proud of.
Where we first saw a lot of common toads (Bufo bufo) and common (Rana arvalis and Rana temporaria) frogs, and now since two weeks where are seeing a lot more green frogs (Rana esculentes sp.) and almost no common toads and frogs anymore. That is logic because green frogs mate later in the year and thus go later to pools.One of the pictures is of two edible frogs (Rana esculentes complex) mating.. have to say it is a very awesome and funny sight to see these two frogs holding on to each other and jump/swim together!
The two photos will come in separate posts because I do not want them to be slideshows.

Just came across another photo from Monday that was worth editing.. This is the Munven, one of the pools we study the biodiversity of amphibians. This is also the pool where we found one of the two common frogs I photographed (see posts below).

Monday I had to go to my research area for school again. We’ve to study the biodiversity of amphibians in this area, we came across a lot of common frogs (Rana temporaria) and smooth newts (Lissotriton vulgaris). Unfortunately due to my lens I was not able to get a nice picture of the newts, but here are two photos from the lots of frogs we found that day.
This is the first one, the second one is coming when this upload is ready :)
It was a very nice day in the field, and I really look forward to go to that area again..
More photos will come after my next visit!

Bye.

This photo was taken on my first trip to an area called ‘De Herperduin’, this will be our (me with 3 other students) research field for the coming months. Our objective is to study the biodiversity of amphibians and dragonflies in this area. 
I will be visiting ‘De Herperduin’ almost every week, so I’m sure more photos will follow!
Ps. Sorry for the long off time, this was due a laptop defect.. But I now got a new one :)
