A new hobby I've run across recently... I've always been a lover of little things and seeing the world from a small perspective (perhaps because I'm a tiny person myself Hilarious! ). I've borrowed a small USB-powered microscope from my work recently, and am pointing it at everything I can find. Here's a sampling of photos I've taken - the first set are reposted from Ella's Garden, but new photos are below.

More root hairs on a very confused garlic chive (it's growing roots-up right now, but I'm sure it'll sort out)

I might have over-planted these poppies...

Root nodules on vetch (a wild legume, but all peas and beans have the same structures).

Root nodules, a bit closer in

Spanish moss. The scaly texture helps it collect and hold water droplets from the air.

I love the textures that this thing can pick up...
