Under the microscope, diatoms, from a prepared slide.

 

Each of these has been carefully isolated from a sample containing many different types, and then carefully arranged on a slide. Diatoms range is size from 0.002 - 0.5 mm so a huge amount of patience is required. 

 

I really admire the slide maker's patience and ability.

top row, far right looks like a Mum bloom

the one next to it looks very much like the head of a deer

i see the bottom, far left appears to be the same shape as what i said on the top row seems like the head of a deer, looks more like a Doberman head since it is filled with darkness in lieu of an outline image

you come up with some of the coolest images
Anne: I love your descriptions! Thank you!
It is amazing how tiny these are... and yes, the patience required of the slide maker!
I enjoyed Sherri's commentary!
Anne: It never ceases to amaze how patient the slide makers are - if you want to see some REALLY amazing arrangements, take a look here www.klaus kemp diatom art

This is evidence of your steady and controlled hands Anne. These things look so mad you couldn't invent them..
Anne: Not my hands Chris! I don't have the expertise for this, and actually, even if I did, I don't think I would want to spend my time doing the arrangement smile it is far too time consuming.
An amazing collection, Anne.
Anne: There are some real experts out there Frank who not only know the identity of each species but can fiddle about and arrange them into a semblance of order and then mount them so they are fixed for the likes of me to enjoy!
