Fantastic stuff, I loved this short video. Microscopic stuff was one of my favorite sections of high school biology, and I’m inordinately pleased at how much I remembered before she told us what it was. Going to spend some time checking our her project website.


I’ve viewed plenty of pond water through a microscope and seen just was she’s showed here. Totally amazing. The “ick factor” is sometimes off the scale but mostly just super cool. I just wish I could capture what I see with better photography.


Well blow me down! Each bit is better than the last

Love this work, please, rock on!
