As a guide it’s nice to try something new. This year I decided to bring a small aquarium and a plankton net to Spitsbergen, to see and show what lives in the ocean. One of the things I hoped to show most was this Sea Butterfly. A winged snail that slowly flies through the upper layers of the sea. In this case I didn’t even need my net, I could just collect it with a small plastic jar.
And the red colour? I placed the aquarium on the red deck of the Noorderlicht. Room for improvement would be to bring a neutral coloured piece of cardboard to use as a background.
