I took a sample of water from the bird bath and along with the usual hoards of Haematococcus pluvialis there were a lot of small Amoeba.

Haematococcus pluvialis is around 55 microns across and the Amoeba were around 75 microns long. I don't know if they would eat a whole H. pulvaris but they look like they may have eaten bits of them.

Amoeba - 70 microns - 20X Objective DIC (Stacked and combined)

Thanks Carlos.

Here is another composition of what's in the birdbath at the moment.

40X Objective DIC, stacked, composition. Relative size is correct.

Thanks Ralf.

As I had a few sequential images of an amoeba I made an animated gif. File size issues limit the frame number and rate. I'm not sure about it but at least it shows a bit of shape-shifting.
