Thanks all!

Pretty common to find water mites in the pond samples I collect to look for specimens. Most are actually more interesting looking than this one.

Great images! Is the dark field a dedicated condenser or DIY? Quite a carapace on that tank of a creature. It must be a tough guy in its own realm.
