Epizooitic peritrich - live stack

Post by gpmatthews »

Yesterday I ran a pond-dipping session for grown-ups at my local nature reserve - we found at the family pond-dips the adults were as interested as the children, so we decided to run one specially for adults.

We had a selection of microscopes and my Zeiss Standard fitted with DIC feeding a large TV screen with live images.

Here is a stack of 8 images of a peritrich adhering to a chironomid midge larva. This was a live specimen that stayed still just long enough for a small stack.


Microscope: Zeiss Standard
Objective: Leitz 40/0.7 NPL Fluotar ICT
Ocular: Zeiss KPL-W 10/18
Substage: Leitz 0.9NA ICT
Sample from Warnham Local Nature Reserve (Sussex UK) dipping ponds, 16 Jul 2012
Stack of 8 images, Zerene Stacker

Though we lean upon the same balustrade, the colours of the mountain are different.
