Cool! Is the ciliate that flat or you did a little stacking?

Excellent texture and a nice comparation between phase and DIC.

How did you convince this fast creature to pose?

Great image, congratulations. Just the right amount of pressure from the coverslip I guess. Never seen the pellicle as beautifully as this, let alone photographed it. 8)
