The Ocelloid

Through the eye of a microbe

Ghost of a Rotifer


Eerily empty exoskeletal remnants of a rotifer, a few bacteria and what might be a cyst of some parasite -- perhaps the one who led this rotifer to meet its fate. (it could also have died of old age and been devoured posthumously, of course) From a pocosin (swamp) in North Carolina.
