Earlier images, not yet re-categorized. All subject types. Not for new images.
Home-made slide prep. (poorly stained!) of a pseudoscorpion. These are small predaceous arachnids that catch prey with their large "pincers" (chelate pedipalps). It's amazing to me that they can catch live insects as the pedipalps are a relatively long way from the rest of the body. This one doesn't seem to have any eyes, must find their prey simply by touch.
50mm f1.8 Canon, reversed, on a Nikon MF 105mm Micro, f16. 6 images stacked with Helicon Focus.
