I’ve been keeping writing blogs for two years, starting from mostly translating Finnish children book parts into English and then writing about organisms in my own research. I’ve accumulated over 30 blog posts so far, some of which are available in Chinese, too. To make it easier to see my posts, all the links are listed here, categorised with different topics: Diving Beetles, Wetland Life, Learn Nature with Art Series, Travel, Translations, and Others.
My main research interest is on diving beetles. I’ve written a short introduction about diving beetles and them in Chinese culture.
To make sure my identification is correct, I studied diving beetles in the Finnish Museum of Natural History (LUOMUS) in 2017. In 2018, I studied other water beetles and also Odonata there.
With my great passion for dytiscids, I read about each genus and summerise what I learned. So far, I’ve written about:

I’m interested in different aspects of diving beetles. Recently I read some literature about water mites as parasites of diving beetles and wrote:
Fieldwork makes my research possible. I’ve been collecting data since 2017. The first time collecting beetles on my own is definitely unforgettable. I still remember the moment I got my traps back, checking what was trapped. I experienced how biodiverse urban wetlands could be and also BULLIED by some naughty kids in the field.
As I record nice moments in my research, my friends started to ask relevant questions and I also corrected my own false impression on some animals.
I’m very happy that I’ve found my wonderland, but my wonderlands sometimes suffer from some problems. I’m glad that I did some surveys to give management advice.

Learn Nature With Art Series
My interested in Art and Nature started with three Finnish artists — von Wright brothers. I visited their exhibition in Ateneum during late 2017 and early 2018. I highly appreciated their work.

As you may have noticed, I wrote about waterbirds with some pictures painted by von Wright brothers. So far, I’ve written about:

Travelling is a best way to refresh my brain. During trips, I always learn something new and even make new friends.

The earliest posts were my translation work from Finnish to English and Chinese. Most of them are children’s book parts. Yet, I don’t really speak much Finnish because I’m a shy person.
I like sharing Chinese culture, nature, and many things that are difficult to classify.
