Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr
The Poet at the Breakfast Table.

I'm surprised thias article hasn't raised any comments.
I'm not a microscopist, but I don't know anywhere else to go to see photographic illustration of this standard.
Plate 15 is my favourite.
With the explanations of techniques and equipment adding to the article's bio-mechanical content, it's obligatory to read it!

Fascinating and informative article with some great photographs, deploying a range of techniques and magnifications on a single specimen.
