biology

it's been a while since i updated. right now i'm studying for my biology exam which is on tuesday. so i searched the word "biology" on flickr and found pictures of an old biology book, the giant golden book of biology from 1961(?):












(click photos to view them larger and to get to the source)

i love the drawings in this book.

(and i could not help noticing the fact that there were several results with pictures from Twilight, which i found a bit funny/sad)

  4. I haven't studied biology for almost two years now, because I chose the social speciality for my A leves. Which is great, because although I think it's interesting I was really bad at it xD

    But wouldn't mind having some books like this :)
    But....Twilight? O.o
