Amoeba proteus

Here are brightfield and phase contrast renderings of a prepared amoeba slide. I did my best to focus, expose, color balance and size them the same for side-by-side comparison. Clicking on either image will take you to Flickr, where you can flip from one to the other. The nucleus stands out, of cour...

Re: Prepared slides - Pine studies

Thank you. One after the next, these botanical sections are stunning. I am intrigued but a little intimidated by the microtome step. There are too many enthusiastic posts about huge machines that will certainly push my poor, patient better half past her limit. Are there hand-units worth a serious try?

Questions from our town's old reservoir

Went fishing with my son this morning, and before we left, we got some samples for later, and now we have lots of questions! https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4224/34145149143_4dd3fa436e_b.jpg This is Spirogyra, correct?
