Fascinating!

I am curious about the lighting (different background coloration), can you tell us what was used?

Hello Charles,

I use differential interference contrast with lambda / 4 plate.
The position of the polarizing filter gives the different background colors.

Beautiful photos. I like that you can clearly see the diatoms even though they seem to be ingested.
