Re: Honey bee

Hairs in eye.
Surprising yes but...
...I guess the image can be "error corrected" by the bee visual system, to allow/ignore hairs. Lots of little lenses.
The hairs could still give important proximity information, warn about parasites etc. It has no lids.

Re: Bee wing

A stunning shot of a bee wing.
Could I also pry for details. How have you mounted the wing? I assume in air, but any tricks or is it just on a silde?
Also your lighting is sublime....I would love to know how to do that....

Re: Conjugation+Fission+Conjugation in Amphileptus

Really fascinating stuff. Would surely make a great scene in a longer film about Amphilileptus etc.
As in you could have feeding/escaping.

Top notch broadcast level vid (if only anyone was broadcasting single celled natural histories).

Many thanks IanW, hkv, Francisco and JimT I like the intergalactic vessel one too! I have had lots of colourful crystal images, but fewer that are subtle like that one.

Adventures in Benzoic Acid, Orange G and Citric Acid

Hello all. I tired mixing Orange G, Benzoic Acid and Citric Acid in 50% methyl cellusolve (2-methoxyethanol) 50 % ethanol as you do. Ok, the Orange G was in this solvent as it was part of recipe for doing Johanson's Quad stain I used while back to stain some daffodyl ovaries. Anyway its fairly cool ...

Wonderful times for those that saw some of the awesome (and this time I think I'm using the word with justification) spectacle Even seeing the partial occult by the moon is impressive.
