What is this?

Post by Donw »

Here are two photos of my latest 'find', and a video.

The video is way longer than it needs to be, so please don't feel obligated to watch the whole thing. I just lost track of time trying to keep this animal in focus.



40X APA. Sorry it's so grainy, but I needed a high ISO to get the shutter speed I wanted.

Your find is the ciliate Halteria. Thgis beast is small...20-50 um Its movements i.e. bounding movements is an identifying trait.
it is hard to get this guy to stay still for a picture!

all the best
