The last water bear I posted was in the belly of a worm Shocked ... so when I found this one crawling around some debris I thought it would be nice to get a more pleasing portrayal of this subject. In the first image the focus on the head is near the surface, in the second it is toward the "inside", and the complex buccal pharyngeal apparatus can be seen more clearly.

Ken,
My experience with these guys is that they don't always cover a lot of ground (as in "Point A to Point B") but they are always squirming every which way. So it's not always easy to get a "live" shot where you have enough "parts" in focus to make the picture interesting. I try to concentrate on the first two "legs" and the head... when it looks like I've got something in the same plane of focus I shoot. Take lots of shots and hope something works.

I wanted to mention when I posted that this was taken using slightly oblique brightfield illumination... nothing fancy.
