Beautifully captured! This is a very fast swimmer, if not pinned down by cover slip. Here is a video that I made of it a few years ago, under offset oblique light: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwpiNs2rXW8

Tried this too, but they are very very fast.

Thanks zzffnn and Anne. I got lucky because this one was in a clearing in some debris, so the motion was limited.
