Hello all,

Here's a shot of a Brachionus from my critter farm - the dark field illumination clearly demonstrates the movement of the cilia around the corona, although I was not able to get a good exposure with flash so I could not 'stop' the movement.



Leitz Orthoplan, Plan 25X, Leitz 0.80 DF Condenser, Coolpix 4500, PSP 9.0

All the best,

Mike

I agree, a splended shot. Very Happy You may not have stopped the cilia but the image has excellent color and details. Good work! Very Happy

I have to agree Mike, a really splendid shot. I think in this case it is better that the cilia not be stopped, as the slight bluring effect is very telling. That critter farm is turning out some great critters Very Happy

Hello Tom,

Good to hear from you and I do hope things are improving for you and yours.

I am very pleased to have this photo selected and thank you and the rest for providing this forum - as far as I'm concerned, this is where the best photography, micro & macro, is being done.

All the best,

Mike
