Images made through a microscope. All subject types.
Sometimes, when watching the creatures in a drop of pond water, I like to fantasize about what they are doing. I noticed a small air bubble with Rotifers racing around it. I imagined that the air bubble was a "Rotifer race track." Then I saw 3 Paramecia "take over" the air bubble. Of course, there was no real collaboration among the Paramecia. Or was there? I'll leave that question for your imagination.
As for the patience of the Paramecia, keep in mind the video is running at 4 times normal speed. So they are being really patient! Also, although pretty new to the microscopy hobby, I have noticed "rubbing" behavior in Paramecia quite a few times. Maybe it serves some function? Thanks for watching!Olympusman wrote:Interesting. Those are the most patient paramecia I have ever seen. Also, this is the second video posted recently that shows a paramecia "rubbing" behavior.
