This is good, but you need to step it back with a smaller objective to view more of the interactions and sociological behaviors of who is getting along with who etc...

I would agree that what you are doing at the moment would be a good example and so those are mine, enjoy the work.

A very, very nice video - really gives the 'feel' of the creature (sorry - I have virtually no knowledge in this field) passing-by. Super imaging and pretty rich in morphological detail too! :) The 'back-end' :oops: looks very interesting - lots of micro-structure here and obviously throughout. Quality is a keyword surely attached to your work 75RR. Thanks for the superb post. :)

Many thanks mrsonchus and JimT

Seeing the internal flow was almost hypnotic.

First one I had ever seen or heard of for that matter.
It was a case of The Ciliate Diversity Chart to the rescue. :)

Wow! Wonderful video. Nice to see, for the first time, the details of the amoeba-like flow, details of the tail end, as well as the cilia! Excellent use of your phase optics. Went by too quickly :) .
