Image Gallery: Paramecia Portfolio

by Jim Evarts, USA

Editor's note: Jim Evarts has kindly shared a portfolio of Paramecium images which he has taken over some years. Jim writes:
All of the photomicrographs of the different paramecia were taken by electronic flash on T-Max 100ASA black and white 35mm film using my Ortholux microscope with 16X and 25X achromatic phase contrast objectives. The flash stops all the movement each time I take the shot. It takes extreme patience on my part to catch them at the right time to compose the picture.
