Ostracods. (Seed shrimp).

Post by Charles Krebs »

Tried out a new trinocular camera adapter last night... "retired" the separate stand I have been using to avoid SLR camera vibration. (Much less need for it with the current Canon cameras I now use). So after adjusting things to be parfocal, I wanted to take a few test shots and these guys were the first things sucked up in the eyedropper.

A couple of fairly normal shots followed by two that are a little more abstract and "mysterious".

Very nice indeed, looks like that adapter is working well. Love the way that little tiny Protozoan makes it into the second shot. Really gives a sense of scale. Is the second picture stacked? It's usually hard to get these creatures to stay still when alive.

Just absolutely incredible images. As are virtually all the images in this forum. Yesterday I happened to take a picture of a similar (or the same) critter (astracod?) and I was "kind of" pleased with it, until I saw these...

Just amazing what you experts can do.

Lovely! The second one looks like a funky Pistachio!
