Well the local water ways are beginning to build their seasonal Daphnia population. I grabbed a sample and took some shots with the M420. These suckers never stop moving! I finally got four decent images which have been assembled into the collage below. Check out the youngster top right.



Nikon Coolpix 4500
Leica M420 Macroscope
Apozoom 6:1
10x Relay Lens
Schott-Fostec fibre optic ringlight below the stage - darkfield
Paint Shop Pro 7.0 various tools
Neat Image

Very beautiful sequence of shots, Ron. These pictures have this 'live' feel, like being observed thru microscope.

Thanks - I used the circle crop option in Paintshop Pro to get the "through the scope" look. Assembling images like this produces a very high resolution file, one that yields a very high res 12"x18" print.

Hi ya' Ron Smile

I just love Daphnia Exclamation Very Happy When I was a child my mother kept plants in crystal vases. The water would always be full of Daphnia. I spent hours watching them with a student microscope. Very Happy

Congrats on being this month's choice for the Administrator's Appreciation Gallery. Very Happy

Best regards as always, my friend. Very Happy
