Beautiful video with wonderful detail!
Picasso is dead,
Mozart is dead,
Einstein is dead,
And I ain't feeling great.

Damn cool!

At 20 sec you can see the swirling hydrodynamics of the cilia in action (I think). A couple of questions:

Magnification? FOV? Lighting configuration? Camera setup?

I'd like to try my hand at this sort of thing and just wondering if I've got at least some of the basics. Thanks, in advance.

Testudinella patina - patina being a latin word for a broad, flat dish. I like to call them flying saucer rotifers :)

Hi.
A moment ago I praised another forum member whose movie I liked very much.
But your production is also a real feast for my eyes.
I watched your movie with great pleasure.
Is beautiful.
You inspired me.
I also have a Polish PZO DIC, but I can't configure it to get results similar to yours.

Regards

I frequently look for games to play in my free time. When I discovered heardle game, which is both calming and brain-training, it was interesting.

Hello.
Thank you for your kind comment.
If I can be of any help to you in configuring your PZO, it will be a pleasure for me.
