These shots are of a barnacle larva that hatched out of an egg mass found in a salt water sample (a couple of barnacles broke off into my jar while collecting some algae).
The eggs can be seen over in the "macro" section:

I remember seeing a great darkfield shot Wim had taken of this subject... think I like his a little better, so I guess I'll keep trying. Wink

Great shots on both posts Charlie. I never get to see things such as this, since I am now landlocked here in the mountains. Sad I would say you did a great job on these, as usual. Very Happy

Lovely, just lovely!

But the set is not complete... Do we get the cross-polarized muscles tomorrow (hint, hint) ??

BTW, what is the size on these beasts?

Thanks all!

Rik... I did think the internal musculature would really "light up" with crossed polarizers, so I tried it. Kind of a yawn. Could be I didn't play around enough to get the "angles" right. If I try these again I'll take another look.

Wow, fantastic pictures, even the missus said so, "what are those, they are really pretty, really nice" and it is quite something to even be able to get her to look up from her lap top screen.

Charlie! You are too modest. And I think your memory plays tricks on you. Smile These are super! But it is good to strive for the best possible image, although you should not forget to get pleasure from the results!!!!! Smile I hope you can keep them alive long enough to see the next stage, the Cypris stage. This Nauplius is named after the copepod's Nauplius larva, the next stage looks like an Ostracod. Strange animals these Copepods!

best regards! Wim
