Another Testudinella

Post by gpmatthews »


I found yet another of these... they're rapidly becoming my favourite rotifer!

Zeiss Stadard GFL Microscope
Objective: Leitz 40/0.7 NPL ICT Fluotar
Substage: Leitz ICT
Ocular: Watson x8 Compensating
Camera: Canon Powershot S50
ISO200, F4.9, Flash
Sample from garden pond

Though we lean upon the same balustrade, the colours of the mountain are different.

Wow Graham, your DIC photos are getting better and better. The background in this looks to be a little over sharpened but the main subject looks super, thanks. :o

This is very, very nice Graham! Excellent. I've really had a tough time finding and photographing this rotifer.
