Beautiful Charles, I only once had the luck of finding and viewing a Volvox, under a simple CH.
What are those little red dots on the last picture?

These are the best Volvox images I've seen, anywhere.

The answer to the question about the "little red dots". Each dot is an eyespot, of osmophilic granules, embedded in the chloroplast - used to detect the direction and intensity of light. Beautiful example of the cytoplasmic strands connecting the cells of the colony.

Charlie,

Beautiful images ! They remind me the domes of very modern glass architecture.
