Up Micro-life III Prev Next Slideshow

More tiny creatures of the family Cladocera taken through the microscope. These are found in fresh water ponds and lakes, usually amongst the submerged vegetation. The abundance of some species depends upon environmental conditions and water quality. The last few slides show my basic set up plus the other microscopes that I use from time to time. I've used several lighting techniques, darkfield being my favorite. Each microscope has slightly different optics or is set up for phase contrast, brightfield, darkfield, etc. The Wild is best for high magnification, but the Nikon produces better photographs.
