A bdelloid rotifer through a 50 year old Swift microscope and a Canon EOS Rebel T1i.

Magnification 160X cropped photo.

Nice! I did that microscopy stuff when I was a kid, using a film camera, B&W film, and developing it in my parents' bathroom. That looks like a stentor!

 

I have microscopes and keep planning to get back into that. Just as much fun as astronomy and... a lot cheaper!

 

Hmmm... with winter coming on... Tom
