A Microbial Zoo

Like Antony van Leeuwenhoek I’m observing the animcules found in a simple hay infusion and finding  great joy in the Earth’s  smallest creatures. He first discovered protozoans in his youth and  retained a child-like joy of discovery from his youth until his death at age 90. The ecology is evolving now with yeasts and many different types of motile bacteria. Magnification 1000x, DIC Microscopy.
