Thanks, Rik! Part 2 should be ready in a couple of days. I have the video ready but I'm still working on the captions.

Riveting and fascinating.

I hope there's a happy ending!

Thanks for your comment micro_pix! I guess that whether the ending is happy or not depends on the time span involved but I will tell you that a complete lorica with a feeding Vaginicola appears at the end of Part 2. :D What eventually happened to the organism will be left to your imagination.

Very nice work, Bill!

I love the way high quality video allows us to demonstrate activities many would overlook because we either didn't recognize the significance, or didn't have the patience to watch long enough for the cool things to happen.

So, I know it's a lot, but how many hours of video did you actually shoot and edit to get both parts? :D

Thanks, Tom. As for the amount of video, I was working with a bit over two hours of it. In Part 2, most segments are running at 27 times normal speed in the 4 minute, 36 second video. By the way, both parts are the same length.

Hi Bill,
I saw parts 1&2. Very interesting process. You did well to capture the whole "shifting house" sequence.
Cheers Kanga.
Try, try again. Fall down nine times get up ten.

Thanks for your comments. I was very lucky to catch the process.
