A very beautiful creature (Phacus)

#1 Post by KD Arvidsson » Sat Aug 08, 2020 9:37 pm

Unfortunately a dirty sample on a very beautiful and fascinating microscopic creature. Filmed with HY-2307 Camera and Nikon Labophot 2 microscope, Brightfield technique and used magnification 100x-200x. By KD Arvidsson

Lovely little creature : It’s almost ‘flying’ in the water ... like a stingray

Please tell/show us more if you can !

One of my favourite species! So elegant in the water. Optimized for gliding through the water!
