Compound Microscope (Scans of original images).

A cross section of the stem of a small pine tree. Prepared slide.

 This is a view of some crystals of paracetamol, viewed using polarised light. Slide prepared by the author.


 Stereo Microscope (Scans of original images).

The head of a garden spider (Araneus diadematus).
Note the multiplicity of eyes. 

 This is (I think) the female sexual organ of the garden spider. 

 I've forgotten to which breed of spider these fangs belong. 

 This is the head is of some sort of hover fly. Note the compound eye.
