JOURNAL OF A BIOLOGIST (MYSTERY IN THE WATER)🧠 / MISTERIO EN EL AGUA👨‍🏫🙇‍♂️

in StemSocial3 months ago
October 17, 2021, today at 9:00 am I prepare to analyze a water sample that I have taken in a park, I do not know what awaits me when I drop a drop of water and take it to the magnifying glass! microscopic life never ceases to amaze me, sometimes I find organisms so simple that it immediately comes to mind! WUOW !! how simple life is! but on other occasions I find myself much more complex, I classify them as "microscopic monsters" they are parasites or some other higher organism that makes my skin crawl when I see their organs and movements! I am already psyched up and psychologically prepared to see life in a drop of water!🤔😮

17 de octubre 2021, hoy a las 9:00 horas me preparo para analizar una muestra de agua que he tomado en un parque, no se que me espera cuando tire una gota de agua y la lleve a la lupa! la vida microscopica nunca deja de sorprenderme, aveces encuentro organismos tan simples que inmediatamente viene a mi mente! WUOW!! que simple es la vida! pero en otras ocasiones me encuentro otros muchos mas complejos, yo los clasifico como "monstruos microscopicos" son parasitos o algun otro organismo superior que me erizan la piel cuando veo sus organos y movimientos! ya estoy mentalizado y preparado sicologicamente para ver vida en una gota de agua!😨😰😱

In my short life I have observed that life makes its way through any type of biological condition, and collected water in acidic places, in very alkaline places, muddy waters, sewage, and had the privilege of analyzing water samples from South American countries. and Europeans! and there has never been a water that did not give me a new microorganism! I always get something new and I have to classify it ... But today is Different ...😣😶
En mi corta vida he observado que la vida se abre paso por cualquier tipo de condicion Biologica, e recolectado agua en sitios acidos, en sitios muy alcalinos, aguas fangosas, aguas negras, e tenido el privilegio de analizar muestras de agua de paises sur americanos y europeos! y nunca ha habido un agua que no me origine un nuevo microorganismo! siempre consigo algo nuevo y tengo que clasificarlo.... Pero hoy es Diferente...😥😮

I like challenges, I always want to discover new things to spend hours in the book of "freshwater microorganisms" identifying what I get! Since I was little I loved to play that I was a scientist and that I studied everything that surrounds me! But today I did not think that an animal could measure my intellectual capacity and that it would be a challenge for me! while walking in the park my head began to work, imagine, think, and I saw these water tanks, it was obvious that the water was stagnant and this medium is the ideal way to find organisms!😍🤔
Me gustan los retos, siempre quiero descubrir cosas nuevas para pasar horas en el libro de "microorganismos de agua dulce" identificando lo que consigo! desde pequeño adore jugar a que era un cientifico y que estudiaba todo lo que me rodea! pero hoy no pense que un animal podia medir mi capacidad intelectual y que lograria ser todo un reto para mi! mientras caminaba en el parque mi cabeza comenzaba a trabajar, imaginar, pensar, y vi estos tanques de agua, era obvio que el agua estaba estancada y este medio es el ideal para encontar organismos!🧫🔬

So I took my two test tubes out of my backpack and took two water samples in the two water tanks at different locations, I wanted to see if the water that was closer to algae had more microbiological load than the one that is taken in a end of the tank! ready my work was done, I closed my backpack and went to my house, here the story becomes more and more interesting! it was time to use my microscope!👀😱
Por lo que saque de mi mochila mis dos tubos de ensayo y tome dos muestras de agua en los dos tanques de agua a distintas localizaciones, queria ver si el agua que estaba mas cerca de algas tenia mas carga microbiologica que aquella que es tomada en un extremo del tanque! listo mi trabajo ya estaba echo, cerre mi mochila y fui a mi casa, aqui la historia cada vez se torna mas interesante! era hora de usar mi microscopio!😨😰🧫

As you can see, my work area is always ready to tell my stories, it is ready for action! It is very important for me to have everything organized and clean because a disorganized work area can cause accidents, and we do not want to damage samples or any accessories! or worse, our work tool (microscope), my lenses are ready, take one 10X and the other 25X, also I have a 2X lens that multiplies my field of vision by 2!😮🦾🧠
Como ves mi area de trabajo esta siempre preparada para relatar mis historias, esta lista para la accion! es muy importante para mi tener todo organizado y limpio porque un area de trabajo desorganizada puede provocar accidentes, y no queremos dañar ni muestras, ni algun accesorio! o peor nuestra herramienta de trabajo (microscopio), mis lentes estan preparadas saque una de 10X y la otra de 25X ademas tengo una lente 2X que multiplica por 2 mi campo de vision!🤓🤓

SAMPLE ASSEMBLY👨‍🏫🧫🔬/MONTAJE DE LA MUESTRA💻📷🧬

Many microscopic organisms are resistant and have a very high tolerance level, some can resist changes in temperature, others are more sensitive and sudden changes in the environment end up killing them! The movements inside the test tube make a difference in what I am going to observe. You know why? Over time I made the mistake of stirring the water with very abrupt movements and when I looked in the magnifying glass I observed parts of organisms that had been detached, others died, so I imagined, a stagnant water is not a "river" now I always make movements very delicate circular! this to raise the organisms that live at the bottom of the tube!😮😮
Muchos organismos microscopicos son resistentes y tienen un nivel de tolerancia muy alto, algunos pueden resistir mudanzas en la temperaturas, otros son mas sensibles y cambios bruscos en el ambiente acaban por matarlos! los movimientos dentro del tubo de ensayo marcan una diferencia en lo que voy a observar sabes por que? con el tiempo cometia el error de remover el agua con movimientos muy bruscos y cuando veia en la lupa observaba partes de organismos que habian sido desprendidas, otros morian, por lo que imagine, un agua estancada no es un "rio" ahora siempre hago movimientos circulares muy delicados! esto para subir los organismos que viven en el fondo del tubo!😲😱

I don't have work hours but I like to work more at night, it is relaxed, there is no noise on the street or in my house, so I can work comfortably and stay at the microscope for a few hours! I usually take a few pauses so as not to tire my eyes! With the naked eye I can tell which of the two tubes are more interesting and it was OBVIOUS the tube near the algae contained more life, I could see some very small organisms swimming through the tube! And that was the tube I took to look at number 2.😮🤔
No tengo hora de trabajo pero me gusta mas trabajar de noche, es relajado, no hay ruido en la calle ni en mi casa, por lo que puedo trabajar con comodidad y permanecer en el microscopio algunas horas! acostumbro hacer algunas pausas para no cansar mi vista! a simple vista puedo notar cual de los dos tubos son mas interesantes y era OBVIO el tubo cerca de las algas contenia mas vida, podia ver algunos organismos muy pequeños nadando por el tubo! y ese fue el tubo que tome para observar el numero 2.😧😨

I was ready, it was time to move on to the second step, prepare my slide and my coverslip, I always wipe these accessories with a clean cloth to remove any dirt such as dust or grease that could interfere with my data collection! I already imagined the amount of rotifers, flagellated organisms I was going to get in this very dirty water!😮😮
Estaba listo, era momento de pasar al segundo paso prepara mi portaobjeto y mi cubreobjeto, siempre paso un paño limpio por estos accesorios para eliminar algun sucio como polvo o grasa que pueda interferir en mi toma de datos! ya imaginaba la cantidad de rotiferos, organismos flagelados me iba a conseguir en esta agua que estaba muy sucia!😲😲

I very carefully slide my dropper into the tube and take a drop of water from the middle and top! I want to take as many organisms as possible and for this I use higher levels of depth, deep down I am not interested because when I do the circular movements I should not get anything in the deepest part because everything is suspended!😣😮💧💧
Deslizo mi gotero con mucho cuidado dentro del tubo y tomo una gota de agua de la parte media y superior! quiero tomar la mayor cantidad de organismos posibles y para ello uso niveles superiores de profundidad, en el fondo no me interesa porque cuando hago los movimientos circulares no debo conseguir nada en la parte mas profunda porque todo queda suspendido!🧫🔬

This is where my imagination begins to fly, in this last step is when every scientist becomes excited and begins to feel anxiety, we want to place the drop of water on the "stage" and begin to photograph any type of creature that appears in the eyepiece!🙋‍♂️👨‍🎓
Aqui es donde comienza a volar mi imaginacion, en este ultimo paso es cuando todo cientifico se excita y comienza a sentir ansiedad, queremos colocar la gota de agua en la "platina" y comenzar a fotografiar cualquier tipo de criatura que aparezca en el ocular!👀🧫🔬

Dear diary: 10/17/2021, 9:58 am I mounted my water sample and then I started with the observation under a 20x magnification. It is my smallest objective, I want to see organisms with a wide image, and immediately I get some algae green, many diatoms that move involuntarily through the sample, I do not see flagella, when I consult my book "freshwater microorganisms" I can identify some😲
Querido diario: 17/10/2021, 9:58 e montado mi muestra de agua y proseguidamente comence con la observacion bajo un aunmento de 20x es mi objetivo mas pequeño, deseo ver organismos con una imagen amplia, e inmediatamente me consigo con algunas algas verdes, muchas diatomeas que se mueven involuntariamente por la muestra, no veo flagelos, cuando consulto con mi libro "microorganismos de agua dulce" logro identificar algunos📕

Following my intuition and experience the closer I get to the algae, the more organisms I come across, I am not referring to hundreds or thousands, I am describing millions of microorganisms suspended in a single drop of water! and wow! I can't imagine how many billions or trillions of organisms are in that water tank! So far I have not registered any new individuals for me!🙇‍♂️🤓
Siguiendo mi intuicion y experiencia mientras mas me acerco a las algas, mas organismos me encuentro, no me refiero a cientos ni miles, estoy describiendo millones de microorganismos suspendidos en una simple gota de agua! y wuao! no puedo imaginar cuantos billones o trillones de organismos hay en ese tanque de agua! hasta ahora no e registrado ningun individuo nuevo para mi! 😮📕

Go how microscopy evolves, I remember in 2002 I was seeing microscopic life with such a simple phone and it was so difficult to photograph because it was always moving, a phone with I don't know? 10mp? wow! Today I have access to universal mobile phone supports that give me a perfect field of vision and even allow me to record my discoveries on video!🧬😱
Vaya como evoluciona la microscopia, recuerdo en el 2002 estava viendo vida microscopica con un telefono tan simple y era tan dificil fotografiar porque siempre se movia, un telefono con no se? 10mp? guao! hoy tengo acceso a soportes de telemoviles universales que me dan un campo perfecto de visio y me permite hasta registrar en video mis descubrimientos!👨‍🎓👀

0ea6c5b3a68d5508dc0a82d74d55c304.gif

Go this more complex organism, I no longer describe a simple diatom or groups of algae, I mean an organism that has its own movement and that clearly has a FLAGELAR movement system.😱😲🤔🦾

Based on my bibliographic reference I can affirm that organisms tend to be more complex as I get closer to algae, this because microalgae are a source of food for many microorganisms, starting with the most complex, for example I could observe some Euglenophytes, some zooflagellates and many flagellates!🧫🔬
Apoyandome en mi referencia bibliografica puedo afirmar que los organismos tienden a ser mas complejos a medida que me acerco a las algas, esto porque las microalgas son una fuente de alimento para muchos microorganismos, comenzando con los mas complejos por ejemplo pude observar algunos Euglenofitos, algunos zooflagelados y muchisimos flagelados!🧬📕

Wow, what do we have here is a mosquito larva, at this time of year? Summer is over, which is the favorite season for mosquitoes! I have to see in the books: "mosquito larvae go into wintering in winter", we are not completely in winter yet but I discovered in my personal records that in mid-October you can still see very active mosquito larvae!👨‍🏫😨
Vaya, que tenemos aqui es una larva de mosquito, a esta altura del año? el verano ya paso, que es la epoca preferida de los mosquitos! tengo que ver en los libros: "las larvas de mosquito entran en invernacion en invierno", aun no estamos completamente en invierno pero e descubierto en mis registros personales que en mediados de octubre aun se puede visualizar larvas de mosquitos muy activas!📕🔬🧫

WHAT IS THIS???

WHY DOESN'T MY BOOK DESCRIBE THIS ORGANISM?

img_20211016_235739.jpg

img_20211017_000139.jpg

I have never seen this organism, it has a certain dimension since it can be visible to sight! It has a very strange locomotion, it has bumps that come out on the sides of its body! The more I read in my book the more confused I am!😣😱
Nunca habia visto este organismo, tiene una cierta dimension ya que puede ser visible a vista! tiene una locomocion muy extraña, presenta unas protuberancias que salen a los costados de su cuerpo! mientras mas leo en mi libro mas confundido estoy!😨😨

It looks like a monster straight out of a horror movie, an alien! I do not understand when I review the images of more complex organisms or parasites, I do not get any clue that leads me to the identification of this individual!🤔🤔
Parece un monstruo sacado mismo de una pelicula de terror, un alien! no comprendo cuando reviso las imagenes de organismos mas complejos o parasitos no consigo ninguna pista que me lleve a la identificacion de este individuo!📕📕🔬

Clearly I can observe a small somewhat complex digestive system gives to differentiate some tubes that begin at its "mouth" and end at the back! but I am confused because I had not seen this retractable system of movement "some species" of ligaments that retract inside the body and that clearly come out through a "tail" or "spike". What function does it have? movement? feeding?😧😧
Claramente puedo observar un pequeño sistema digestivo algo complejo da para diferenciar algunos tubos que comienzan por su "boca" y culminan en la parte posterior! pero estoy confundido porque no habia visto este sistema retractil de movimiento "algunas especies" de ligamentos que se retraen dentro del cuerpo y que salen claramente por una "cola" o "pua" que funcion tiene? movimiento? alimentacion?😲

kjl.jpg

I think I will have to ask for help to identify this organism! I am in doubt if it is some Anopheles, Mochlonyx, Psychoda. A larva of some animal? a larval stage? some parasite? I have an intuition about some plateau! I don't know what to look for to find this monstrous alien!😱😨
Creo que tendre que pedir ayuda para lograr identificar a este organismo! estoy con alguna duda si es algun Anopheles, Mochlonyx, Psychoda. Una larva de algun animal? una fase larvaria? algun parasito? tengo una intucion sobre algun platelmito! no se que buscar para lograr dar con este monstruoso alien!😱😲

Wuow, I feel floating in a place without gravity, here nature has given me a very low blow, what a beautiful specimen, without light it is something indescribable, you do not know how interesting it is to see how all its organelles work externally and internally! this is where my diary speaks for itself "IT IS BECAUSE OF THESE EXPERIENCES THAT I LOVE TO DO SCIENCE"💁‍♂️🙋‍♂️

I close my experience today 10/17/2021 at 12:00 making it clear how the depth of the water is a crucial external factor for the evolutionary scale of microorganisms, it was interesting to see some mosquito larvae at this time of year, it will be the global warming a factor that alters the ecology of animals? uhm .... Interesting .... Evolution also surprised me seeing a very complex small organism that until today I CANNOT IDENTIFY ....😁😁
Cierro mi experiencia hoy 17/10/2021 a las 12:00 dejando en claro como la profundidad del agua es un factor externo crucial para la escala evolutiva de los microorganismos, fue interesante ver en esta altura del año algunas larvas de mosquitos, sera el calentamiento global un factor que altera la ecologia de los animales? uhm.... Interesante.... Tambien la evolucion me sorprendio viendo un pequeño organismo muy complejo que hasta hoy NO LOGRE IDENTIFICAR....😱😱
