HAHA, it looks like little brushes polishing up your closterium. :)

Very nice cleaning maids that work for free.

It was a quite silly question ;) I was asking about the ciliates and what made them to arrange in a row ;) nothing important.

That's a good observation, about the light. I had noticed something similar about parameciums before, but never put it together. I have also read they are light sensitive, and that may be used as a good way to get sharper images, especially with flash. Lower the light to slow them down, then flash them. :)

Excellent images but the darkfield and DIC are the standouts here.
