From a freshwater wetland pond.
Around 13 microns horn to horn.
Quite neat watching it slide along, it moved in a curve rather than a straight line.

Very nice image. I think what you have there is a desmid rather than a diatom. A Closterium I believe.

Thanks 75RR
You are correct a Closterium it is :)
