Hi all!

I’ve recently unearthed my microscope and have gotten it setup so I can take photos and video using my phone. I wanted to see if any permies had suggestions for things they would like to see from the micro-world. I would do my best to collect samples and photograph anything you recommend. I have a 100x objective, so everything except viruses and organisms of that scale would be a challenge.

Let me know what you would like to see!

Pollen is the bees knees...oh maybe bee knees. What kind of surfaces does pollen stick to best? Hairy, Sticky, bumpy?

Photographer chiming in!  Good luck with your macro photography, it's a challenge to get a decent plane of focus on the really tiny things.

Pollen, soil, leaves, petals, bugs (though 20-100x may be easier), electrical solder joints, worm bits, seeds, fern spores, mold, roots, rhizomes, insect eggs...
