Another chain of diatoms with a different type of helical twist.

Hi

I repeat myself: the finest photographers encounter the most unusual specimens. It's not fair ( or may be it is!!).

Wonderful!!

Bernhard

Thanks!

It is marine and with a 10X objective.

Bernhard. It is not that difficult. I observe my samples in a petri dish under a stereomicroscope so I can pick out the most interesting organisms with a pipette. This way you can select the finest bits in a sample! Each time putting a new bit of the sample in the petri dish. I only had a limited time to photograph this time (half a day) but I hope to do a bit more marine. The trouble with marine water is that it will only last a day or 2.
