I have not posted for a while. The trouble is that making pictures is easy and fun, but sorting them out is a nuisance. :-) But the winter months are good for this.

These are some fresh water organisms, images from several years ago. the first image is not that good but it was the moment the juvenile Brachionus escaped from its egg.

Thelasy year was a bit of a struggle. I made several changes to my set up and something went wrong. Since I made several changes and did not have much time and patience to study the images it took a long time before I figured out what it was. I added an optovar to my microscope and it happened to be damaged. There were several scratches on the lenses inside. It was especially bad with phase contrast. Hopefully I can make o.k. pictures this year.

Hi Wim , I hope you can sort out your equipment troubles.
I love the second photo, was it a montage or one (lucky, all in focus) shot?
I'm sure we can expect great pictures from you this year.

greetings from Rotjeknor :)

Great. I loved the Volvox and copepod shot as well as the last two which are classic.
