Very nice. Would also like to add a special thanks for including shutter speed!

Many thanks! I thought the shutter speed in this case was relevant: the critter was moving constantly at an enormous speed in and out of the field of view such that getting its photo was a matter of luck).

Did you use flash? Nice and bright for such a fast shutter speed.

No, I did not use flash (setting up for flash has been on my mind for a long time but I've been too lazy to do it). I have plenty of light at low power (here I used the 10x objective and 200 ISO).
