I found some more of these, and by backing off to 20x, I had enough depth of focus to see the stiff cirri--confirming the ID I think.

Hi nice photos - it looks likes like Halteria grandinella to me - one of the fastest protists I have ever seen. This organism can move hundreds of times its body length in less then a second and often disappears out of the field of view when observing with a light microscope. Their is research in the speed of the cilia see

I am going to try and attach a diagram of Halteria from Curds 1982

Cheers
RB

Thanks for the confirmation Robert. It did take a fair amount of chasing them around, and they were quite sensitive to the flash which would cause them to jet off.
