Hi Rogelio,

the first image is great, I have seldomly seen those "border lines" between the cells so clear and beautiful. :-)

Thanks for sharing this

Greetings

A superb use of two lighting/observation techniques to show different aspects of the subject. Very beautiful too.

Thank you very much for your comments.

I think my picture shows the extracellular matrix and Charlie's pictures show the cytoplasmic bridges.

Wonderful views, Rogelio. With things like this in the water, who could possibly wish for a telescope? :D

Brilliant pictures. And one remark. There are only a few Volvox species that retain the cytoplasmic bridges when they grow large. This is a species without. All species have them as a developing sphere and most lose them when they are mature.
