Great to see your outstanding work again in the Forum.
You haven't lost your touch, Charles.
None of my business but why the absense ?

Thanks all very much for the kind remarks! Feels good to finally post a few new images.

Fred (canonian)... but why the absense ?
Nothing to do with microscopy... a couple of things took unexpected, and very difficult turns for me last fall, and I've been trying to deal with them for about 6 months now. Hopefully I'll be able to spend some more time looking through the scopes and visiting here.

If a picture says more than a thousand words, then these are novels to be read. Outstanding as usual! :wink:
