These are a few years old, but perhaps interesting.

I had a little accident resulting in lots of blood. Before I went to my GP to have the wound stitched, I made a quick slide. I didn't expect any visitors, so lots of dust on the eyepiece. Microscope was a Zetopan with a 100/1.32 fluorite anoptral contrast objective.

Notive the small pseudopodia in the white blood cell in the second picture.

Nice images! Thanks for posting.

 

Is the top one showing clotting blood cells? Didn't know they came together on top of each other like that, interesting to see.

You are killing me.  Now I have to look up "pseudopodia".

One awkward moment I experienced in college was having a biology instructor trying to drop hints during a microscopy lab that since he had had a vasectomy he needed a volunteer if we wanted to see "male gametes" live under magnification. Of course he couldn't say that directly for some reason, so as we discussed who could donate a hair and who was brave enough for some blood to be drawn it just seemed like he mentioned his vasectomy an inordinate number of times to us boneheaded students.

 

About a week later it finally dawned on me.

Cuting up an earth worm shows abundant male gametes and slide prep to demonstrate the difference between n and 2n is simple smile.gif ...

Neat! A pseudopodia.

 

For those who don't know, it is a feeding structure put out from time to time by a cell. The cell here in question is a white blood cell.
