Pollen is sort of challenging in the light microscope.
So I grabbed a few dandelions (I've got plenty! ), and when I started to collect some pollen, about 10 of these little bugs fell out of the flowers. I have often seen this small insect in dandelions, so I thought I would take a closer look at them as well as try for a pollen shot.
Tom is certainly correct. Pollen is tough with the light microscope. It is really a subject far better done with SEM. In this shot (taken with the 100X) I'm only satisfied with the one grain in the upper right.
