#1, down feather from a down jacket. #2, a bit of pollen. #3, a peacock feather. Left the image resolution a bit higher this time. Peacock feather at about 150X, the others at about 400x.

CSI database and so funny! A lot better than Jackson Pollock ...  smile
A German TV channel used such pictures as a funny distraction between the commercials, but nobody knew that they used pictures of 20.000 year old cancer cells from a mammoth. A colleague told me. He was the scientist, who did the research and shot the pictures. Maybe you should think about selling the pictures. wink

Sigrid, you  have such an interesting job and know so many people that really do science, I honestly envy you!
I just take pictures of stuff grinning
Someday when I get this really figured out I may make a calendar or something. Depth of field at these magnifications is only a couple microns, so right now I'm struggling just to get a few decent photos that are mostly in focus...

He did just take pictures of cells too!!! Interesting is just everything ...
Calender would be nice, but I think with this kind of pictures, which are really decorative, it would be funny to have everyday objects (coaster, underplates ...) too.

Thanks, Antonio!
I can't compete with you  doing those wonderful pictures of mountains and other really big stuff, so I had to find something that was too small for most people to notice grinning

Amazing Joe! Especially #1 don't see any correlation between the feather and the magnification. It is really cool to see everything soooo up close.

This stuff is fascinating...I did make the mistake of taking a microscopic view at something that had been in my fridge for too long, now I don't know whether to clean the house or just get rid of the microscope grinning
