Microscopic Creatures

One of our customers recently purchased a microscope digital camera adapter for the Panasonic FZ28 camera. The adapter has the equivalent of a 10x eyepiece lens built into it and allows the user to connect a standard point and shoot digital camera to the microscope either through the microscope trinocular port or through a microscope eye tube.

This is a Jaera Albifrons, part of the leach group. This tiny animal (2mm in size) lives in the high tide zone beneath stones.
