Made a goal, stuck to it, and made it happen.
Today, after all this time, I captured my first volvox. Mind you, it's not much of one, but it is a volvox. And, for all case and purpose, that's what matters. I've tried multiple samples of algae over the weekend, and today I tried a new pond out (out back of the Aquaculture facility) and in the dissection microscope, I saw a volvox. Twice it was lost behind other material, but alas I did capture it on my camera.

Later this evening, I did capture a clean, green little volvox... all to itself, and made video and photos of it.
