Under the microscope, diatoms, a test slide.

 

Depending on the species of diatom the fineness of the markings varies and some species have markings close to the resolution limit of the optical microscope. Therefore diatoms are a favourite subject for assessing various aspects of the optical performance of a microscope. (This information is from an article in Micscape)

These are just beautiful!
Anne: I think it's all to do with their geometry.

Klaus Kemp is a very original artist Anne
Anne: His imagination knows no bounds and his patience must be endless.
I am glad to see the return of your micro-world...
Anne: Aww thank you Larry - just a short series this time - but more will come soon I promise!
I guess, and perhaps you are one of them, there are people who know precisely everything about these things.
Anne: No Brian, I am a total novice, I can recognise some of the species names as being desmids, but as for identifying them... not a chance!
Your work is as good as the other fellow's. It is different but as good.

that was interesting about how diatoms are used to test out a microscope and it makes sense, Anne.

it's very much like the patterns people make in Adobe Illustrator
