Second attempt at imaging

#1 Post by Dave S » Thu Aug 22, 2019 7:40 pm

Grabbed a sample from the Bird Bath, and placed a drop of the water on a cavity slide, and placed a cover slip over the top, to try and slow movement down a bit.

Found a Rotifer swimming around, and what I believe to be a Euglena

The 400x image is zoomed and cropped, especially with the Euglena, which was very small at 400x.

Bresser Researcher Trino, and Canon EOS 4000d on the photo tube.

The Rotifier was shot at 1/500th sec, as he was constantly on the move.

Not brilliant I know, but an improvement over my first effort.

Apologies for the 'off site' link', but I've struggled for half an hour to link it using the img markers, without success. I managed it once before, but seem unable to repeat the process. Certainly not a straight forward process with Google Photos.

Hi Dave,
I recently posted the entire method of creating a shared album and linking images using the IMG tags - this is a link to my post...

Hope it helps.

p.s. I just copied an image-address of one of your images into IMG tags,

Here's your image,

Yes, I saw that John, and worked through it step by step, but it just posted a small image icon, and not the images. I tried it several times, but then gave up :x

As I mentioned before, linking to Flickr is so straight forward, you just have to copy and paste the bbCode. The only issue issue is, my Flickr account is just used for my photography.

Why Google Photos adopts such a convoluted method, I have no idea.

I'll have another 'play' with Google photos, later.

I tried it several times, but then gave up
I managed to link one of your images by clicking the link you provided: https://photos.app.goo.gl/9yb79WBJhCzwA7XD7

and then clicking on the image I wanted to link to so it appears full size. I then right clicked on it - and chose Copy Image Location.

Back in the forum, I then pasted that address between the Img markers that appear when one presses the Img button on the toolbar.

Here is the proof that it works:

Ok, I'll give that method a try, thanks.

Yes, that's the method I posted, open the image then right-click to get the 'copy image address' option....
That's also how I posted the linked-to image in my previous post - it definitely works.

Have another go old chap! :D

By the way, that last image looks like our old friend Haematococcus pluvialis. They seem to thrive in birdbaths.
Nice catch.

It does doesn't it?

Did a search and found not only some excellent images but a very informative diagram on its development cycle which I had all but forgotten.

That is encouraging.

You should have a rummage around the Resources (online, books etc.) section, you will find there is some very useful stuff there.

Having a browse around the forum this morning as it's pouring-down here in sunny Cumbria, U.K. and followed your link 75'. A really interesting post with great images, and as you say, the diagram is most illuminating for a 'plant botherer' such as myself. Thanks for the link my friend, I enjoyed it. :)
