I've been thinking of some ideas for offering some public programs and classes that are outside the norm. Having spent a huge amount of time during undergraduate working on marine invertebrates, I spent many, many, many hours over a microscope. As such, I've got a weak spot in my heart (and my wife tells me in my head) for microscopy. Wanting to share the view of the Lilliputian world to all my Brobdingnagian brethren, I picked up a USB microscope. Oh, the possibilities that this opens up for public programs especially. Now programs on mosses, plankton and aquatic insects is within reach as I now have the ability to enlarge and project images of really tiny critters onto a projection screen large enough for others to see and enjoy. I thought I'd share a few photos from my initial playtime here. Dragonfly wing that I found in my driveway. Wood sorrel flower. Unopened disc flowers from Ox eye Daisy.
