Plankton Dale






Examples of plankton found in the last week at Dale, most collected off the beach pontoon.
The variation is vast, looks like a good year so far for plankton samples.

  2. Hi Mark, thanks for comment,collecting sample is random with a net is one way. Photographing is often at low mag x20 to x100, can be done with lens on a bellows or a simple microscope the lighting is the most important. I have a Zeiss Tessovar and a Zeiss Photomicrscope fitted with DSLR's 1960's era but good. If you would like to have a look at my setup email me at michaelcrutchley749@btinternet.com and we could arrange a time.
