Off I go again. I encounter the worms in some numbers this time.
I am more and more interested in the background of the biome,
the background of disintegrating plant cells and the
mysterious circles that make beautiful, creepy images
in the dim light. I did find life of all kinds in the mudpuddle.

You can try to look for Tardigrades ("water bears") in moss and lichens. This describes the procedure in far too much detail: https://microcosmos.foldscope.com/?p=17901

I actually saw one in my culture, but it was apparently dead or it was just the shedding.
