Today I got some flowers in order to search for some nice looking pollen. I should have probably checked which species have interesting pollen shapes, because I only found boring, rounded shapes.
Luckily flowers also have other parts, so there you are, a few pictures:
epidermis of a tulip petal
epidermis of a hyacinth petal with visible stoma here and there and some air bubbles
and last comes my personal favourite. I'm not sure what it is, probably some floral part, found in honey.
I want to use what's left of the flowers to learn how to make stack images. More pictures soon:)
This is my first year's project at filmschool - an animated short inspired by the micro-world. At first I wanted to include real footage of the little creatures. Finally I decided to represent them in a larger scale and give them the life I wanted for them.
Checking out the possibilities of my microscope, and trying to make dark field pictures by putting black paper in various places of the condensor I got this. It's not quite dark field, but the result is interesting:
