Έντομα κάτω από ένα διαφορετικό φως

Πώς φαίνονται λαμπερά στο μικροσκόπιο!

Βιοϊατρικός επιστήμονας και ένθερμος οπαδός της μικροφωτογραφίας, ο οποίος εμφανίζεται με το όνομα «My Microscopic World», αποκαλύπτει την εκπληκτική ομορφιά των διαφόρων μορφών ζωής, όταν μπουν κάτω από ένα μικροσκόπιο.

Πρόκειται για προνύμφες εντόμων, ισόποδα και καρκινοειδή. Όλα αυτά έχουν απαθανατιστεί με τη χρήση πολωμένου φωτός, το οποίο δίνει κάποιες απίστευτα όμορφες και… εξωγήινες λήψεις, ειδικά όταν τα «μοντέλα» κινούνται!

Εκτός από τις εικόνες, το «My Microscopic World» κυκλοφόρησε και ένα επεξηγηματικό βίντεο για τη θαυμάσια αυτή δουλειά του.

Πίσω από την ιστοσελίδα βρίσκεται ο «Μάρτιν», ένας φοιτητής βιοϊατρικής, οποίος προσπαθεί να δημιουργήσει «μαγευτικά, όμορφα και περίεργα βίντεο μικροσκοπίας και εικόνες από τα μικροσκοπικά πράγματα, τα οποία υπάρχουν γύρω μας».

Όπως περιγράφει ο ίδιος χρησιμοποιεί, προς το παρόν, το κινητό του για τα βίντεο και τις φωτογραφίες του, καθώς λόγω έλλειψης χρημάτων δεν διαθέτει εξαρτήματα υψηλότερης ποιότητας.

Αλλά και έτσι τα αποτελέσματα είναι εξαιρετικά…

This is a crane fly, or a tipula if you are fancy. These are found all over the world and look a bit like a huge mosquito. But in contrast to the mosquito, crane flies can’t bite or sting. Some people refer to these insects as “mosquito hawks”, which is a bit misleading as the crane fly is incapable of eating other insects. If the adult crane fly feeds at all during its life, if feeds on nectar. . These images are as always taken with my iPhone mounted on my microscope with a @ilabcam . The colorful background is not photoshop, it is made optically with polarized light! . #science #biology #microscopy #entomology #labcam #shotoniphone #insect #cranefly #tipula #ecology #bug #macrophotography #macro #extrememacro #microscope #closeup #magnification #facts #nature #animal

This is not an alien world filled with giants, but a tiny green spec of plant material. How many tardigrades can you spot? . NARRATION: “This tiny piece of plant material is about the same size as a grain of sand and as you can see, this microworld has a few inhabitants. The two big ones are mites, and if you look closely, you are able to see several tardigrades waddling around. Luckily for the tardigrades, these mites are herbivores and won’t harm them. Mites are very common in nature, both on land and in water, and despite what you might think, most species are harmless to humans and only a few are able to cause disease. Most mites are under a millimeter in size and was first studied in detail under a microscope in 1665 by Robert Hooke who described them as “very prettily shaped insects”. But mites are actually not insects, but arachnids, which means that they are closely related to spiders and scorpions!” .

Let’s try something new. As you can hear I have narrated this post and if you would like to see more of these or think that I should just shut up and do as I have always done, let me know in the comments. . NARRATION: “This is a bunch of tardigrades, and I believe these are from the genus milnesium. They are predatory tardigrades feeding on single celled organisms, microscopic animals or even on other smaller tardigrades. These ones are very big and fast compared to other species of tardigrades, in fact they were so big that I could see them waddling around on the slide before I put it under the microscope. I isolated the tardigrades from a small piece of moss I found on a bench, so the next time you sit down outside you might have quite a few of them crawling around on your bud looking for a meal.” .

This is a larva of a marine snail, or a veliger of a gastropod if you are fancy. The rapid beating hair-like projections are called cilia and the animal uses them to swim through the water and to feed. The cilia create a current of water and food particles towards its mouth to be ingested. If you look closely in one of the last shots, you are able to see food particles being swirled around inside the stomach which aids in digestion. You are also able to see a beating heart inside of the veliger. At some point the veliger will undergo metamorphosis where it loses its cilia and becomes bound to move like a snail. . This time I am using both darkfield- polarized- and oblique microscopy techniques to show you the animal in more ways in the same clip. .

This is a small annelid worm I found in a pond. Inside you are able to see how the worm transports it’s blood around. Some worms use these peristaltic movements to squeeze the blood around, just like the movements that squeezes your food from your stomach to the exit. The peristaltic movements is called peristalsis and is caused by the rhytmical contraction of cells lining the blood vessel as well as the digestive tract. . This was as always filmed with my iPhone mounted on my microscope with a @ilabcam and the music is made by @derekmarquez1 . . When I make these photos and videos, I use a lot of time and materials, like petri dishes, microscope slides, sample tubes, pippets and so on.

The term ‘water flea’ is used a bit different depending on who you ask. Some places a water flea is described as any member of the order cladocera. Other places only members of the suborder anomopoda is considered water fleas. And some will even refer to almost all tiny crustaceans as water fleas. However, despite all this confusion, all animals in this clip are water fleas, and they are some of my favorite animals to observe under the microscope! .

Today I took a drop of my sample water, added it to a slide and put a coverslip on top like I usually do. But then I noticed something I hadn’t paid attention to before; how beautiful bubbles look under the microscope! So, I decided to take an artistic break and take a few nice photos of some bubbles! . All the images are magnified over 150 times and are as always taken with my iPhone mounted on my microscope with a @ilabcam adapter. . #science #biology #microscopy #bubbles #labcam #shotoniphone #underthemicroscope #art #artistic #microworld #microcosmos #phisics #microscope #closeup #magnification #scienceandtechnology #beautiful #polarizedlight #photography #trippy #soap #soapbubbles

This is an amoeba moving around. The way an amoeba moves is by changing its shape and forming projections called pseudopodia. These projections are also used when the amoeba feeds by surrounding an object and ingesting it, essentially hugging its food into its “belly”. If you look closely you are able to see the cytoplasm inside the cell moving around along with ingested material, the nucleus and other cellular components. This footage is sped 5x! .
