New Pictures!

A spider lives in the window sill above our shower and I found this little fly, no more than a couple of millimeters long, in its' web. Here's his head and part of his body at 60x

The fly's beautiful wing at 200x.

The fly's compound eye at 200x. It's apparently been damaged.

A non-static dryer sheet at 60x

Let the boogers continue! This one is from Lucy's eye at 60x and 200x. Note that while Lucy's booger is cleaner than mine (thanks to her breathing less Los Angeles outside air than I do), hers is far more slimy-looking. That's SCIENCE!

The sticky part of a band-aid at 200x

Salvia Divinorum (cured and soaked in salvia extract), a legal hallucinogen, at 200x.

Graphite from a mechanical pencil at 200x

A fish flake. They look so smooth and flat with our eyes, but at 200x they're another world!

Thanks Daniel for the interesting pics. I too look through microscopes but as an occupation identifying asbestos fibers.
