Making your first slide
Here's one of mine!

"Last Page?" | First Page?

This is a low power shot of hairs found on a N.Zealand Daisy Bush, Olearia haastii. It is seen here in polarized light. I scrapped the surface of a leaf and deposited the 'scrappings' into a dollop of Fructose Solution. Pretty neat, huh?

Here's another shot of it taken at a higher power! You can make slides like this easily... trust me, cos I am a rank amateur and I found it easier than working my video recorder.

Ask Larry something!
