|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 ). 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.
Root hairs on a Four O'clock seedling
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...
My scarf (acrylic fiber)
My wedding band (braided white gold with a few years of wear)
Ballpoint ink on a Post-it note
Carbonate rock (from a hydrothermal vent chimney!!!)
And lastly, a small collection of lichens.
Anyone else see a chameleon in this lichen?
