Hi,

sometimes it's nice to leave all the fuss and take photographs of something common and easy like moss:

Mag 40x, 400x, 1000x, stacked with CombineZ5

Coolpix 990









Best wishes

Bernhard

I can practically hear your sigh of relief from here! But I know the feeling very well... Confused Very Happy

Nice shots -- the chloroplasts really stand out in these thin transparent leaves.

Great shots Bernhard I never thought of just putting some moss under the scope. The higher mag. shots are very interesting. Wink

The leaves of mosses are really neat to observe using the microscope. They are only one cell thick which means you don't need to do much of anything to them, to prepare a slide. I like the Mnium species of moss. Great shots bernhard. Very Happy

Theres something really neat about these photo series where you gradually get closer and closer,and now I'm just gonna have to go pull up some moss!

Very neat images(the first one would look good in a frame I reckon!)

Thanks folks for your kind comments.

Exactly, Ken: that's what I meant with "leaving the fuss"- no fixing, cutting thin sections, dying or mounting-just plug and play!!

By the way, one of my german colleagues sent me a mail, stating that this moss should be Eurhynchium swartzii.

Bye Bernhard
