Great catch and video. What was the cause of the shaky movement?

Well slide, petri dish or miniature aquarium?
Zeiss Standard WL (somewhat fashion challenged) & Wild M8
Olympus E-P2 (Micro Four Thirds Camera)

That is a wonderful, fascinating video ! These kinds of videos capture what excites me about microscopy.
