Images made through a microscope. All subject types.
Hard to believe that it has been a full year since I posted any images! Taking care of aging parents and relocating my micro-lab have taken their toll. But here are some new interesting images to share.
Top Image - 6x, Unusual dual stigma structure of this flower. Anthers not visible. Seen here vertical, it actually hangs upside down over a channel in the petal.
95 images at .001 inch increments, 4X Leitz Plan Achromat.
Middle image - 9.5x, Details of the stigma structure, showing the breath of the bubble-like cell stigma surface.
39 images at .001 inch increments, 6.3X Leitz Plan Apochromat.
Bottom image - 16x, Details of the left side of the stigma structure seen in the 6x image, showing the bubble-like stigma surface and the pollen details. Please take a moment to look at the small dark brown object left of the edge of the attached pollen. This is a single fugal spore. So much smaller than pollen.
114 images at 5 micron increments. 10x Olympus S plan apochromat.
Diffused fiber optic illumination.
