just got new dig camera last week, here's some nematodes from my garden soil viewed through my scope in bright field, one has a root in the pic cause i was trying to see if i could see any mycorrhizal.... can you see the nematode?

other pics look like two of them in love but not sure? see the ciliate there too?

other in cool shapes.

im working on a diy camera adapter for the scope, what to try to get some good pic's of bacteria,fungi,proto's, others.....i post em if i can get it to work

anybody else with some cool microbiology pic's?..........tim? tree? anyone?

OK since were sharing, this is one of what i thought was a nematode, Dr I quickly identified it as a dormant " " something I couldn't catch as she said it.

Yes very cool to watch, Vorticello I think (it was discovered and named by an Italian scientist) Like lemon cello. Not a good sign to have them in your tea in any great numbers:nono: but very exciting to watch:cool2:.

also fellows try and stain the root fibers with trypan blue, it will help the AM stand out better, sorry I did not say that before, also iodine is a neat stain..........

Vorticella are very fun to watch as they bring in their food. If you can find one unattached and darting around is cool too. I think too many of them are signs of unfinished compost or anaerobic pockets in your tea.

Nice pics guys!

I think too many of them are signs of unfinished compost or anaerobic pockets in your tea.we seem to pic them up alot in pond water and sometimes out of the wet end of the worm beds, near the bottom. I have never seen one attached by its fibril, one day........

oh dont be a prude, we should do the microbe version, lots of division and sporing, Asexual reproduction and Binary fission, it would be wild.

Some of you may recognize these photos as I lifted many of them from my video work. Here are some bacterial structures and fungal hyphae.

Beginning with a thick section of fungal hyphae (12 um) and a nematode egg about to hatch followed by nematodes.

Here is a female bacterial feeding nematode. The other nematodes shown were also bacterial feeding. Then some flagellates and finally an anchored vorticella; You can see it is using its cilia to swirl the bacteria (little dots) into its 'mouth'

Here is a large ciliate along with some tiny ciliates beside a rotifer. In the second picture the rotifer is contracted and an organelle of the ciliate is visible. There is a shot of a testate amoeba dividing, a lousy shot of three amoebae; one large in the process of devouring a flagellate and two small amoebae exiting at warp speed in amoebae world. Finally a photo of my beloved microscope.

I had video of the egg but my software ate it. Bummer!

My scope is still a work in progress. I have a 100 watt lamp, a 250 watt mercury lamp but am missing the 500 watt xelon fixture. I'm planning to experiment with fixing the cavity up with high intensity fiber optics and create a new sort of autofluorescents by mixing the three light sources with different nm filters. Just waiting for the $
