MICRO. (02/10/14)

I have been playing with the microscope again. Some of these pictures are far from pleasant.20141002121903    A little bit of a ten pence coin.

20141002121556      The head of a House Fly. The fly is about 7mm long.

20141002093314       Alfie picked up a couple of Deer Tics yesterday this is one of them.

This is Tic the Movie.

I will try and get some appealing pictures for tomorrow.

  2. Seems to be working well. Do I feel there may be some stacked micro shots in the future.

    1. John, I already tried. The stand isn't rigid enough. I could do with finding an old conventional microscope stand and taping it to it. It's a bit hit and miss as there is a delay between telling it to take a picture and it doing so.

  3. I hope you're submitting Tic the Movie to the Cannes Film Festival. It's a surefire winner.

  4. John, it's lacking in dialogue, plot and action but one never knows these days.

  5. A really fascinating level of detail from the 'scope. The tick made my skin crawl.

    1. Douglas, I need to improve the technique a bit. I think super glue may help to keep them still.
      I thought the tic looked comical on it's back it kept turning over the little tinker.

    1. Margaret, Tic movies are an acquired taste.

  8. More appealing will be a challenge. I picked up a tick this spring an had to get out my magnifier to tell what kind it was. So I'm waiting for more appealing. You know how to keep your readers. Just promise something for tomorrow.

  9. I've never thought of tics whether moving or still as being a taste ever likely to be acquired.

    1. Graham, they are not the most photogenic or pleasant of god's creatures. I was looking for something that moved but didn't move much and it seemed to fit the bill.
