I love your videos. The oblique polarised light is very effective and the phase contrast shows great detail.

Four Amoebas

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 li...

Here are some grains of red sand from the Namibian desert. It's mostly quartz that has a fine coating of "Hematite", a red oxide of iron. You can see thicker areas of the iron oxide in the crevices on the grains. I used incident light and low intensity transmitted cross polarised light. It's a stack...

Thanks for the comments. Hi Chris, The spores are roughly around 8 or 9 microns for the Inocybe spore (they are not all depicted at the same scale) to around 18 microns for the largest of the Panaeolus spores ( Panaeolus semiovatus ). The Entoloma darkfield was a 40X objective rather than the 100X. ...
