They may have been shown many times before, but seldom as beautifully :D . I would be interested to know the lighting, objective and microscope you employed. The last shot is remarkable. Was the 'shadow on translucent background' effect natural or created in post processing?

Wow, awesome! These would make really nice large fine art prints for wall decoration!

I like the shadow effect of the last image. Really nice images. Is this focus stacked bright field?

Yes, it is bright field.
On average, a picture consists of 100 individual photos (focus stacked)
