Protozoa and Beyond



Today my brother. Michael, gave me the attachments that will allow me to take microscopic photographs such as this Stentor (protozoa) that I found in the small stream running through the woods bordering our back yard. This stentor has attached itself to a strand of algae and is unusual in that instead of a single nucleus it has a string of nuclei that resemble a string of beads. I'm hopeful that this will open a new oportunity for discovery that we all can share.
