I have been into microscopy for many years, formerly professionally (mainly using scanning electron microscopes), so it is high time I got into digi-microscping. These are my first efforts with my Canon A95 Powershot and my binocular microscope. I used the first dead insects I found in the house last night (16.12.05), hence the bits of web and dust. I was amazed what I saw, particularly the hairyness, and hope some of this comes across in the shots. Watch this space for more of this stuff...
