Included here are the VIDCAPS and Video from the East Bijou Creek water sample on day One and Two from Collection Time!
Just some general comments here! Generally, I used the 500 times magnification for the East Bijou Creek! The protozoa were generally small and moved very fast! I used some Protoslo from Carolina biological supply to try and slow the organisms! Unfortunately, I found that the increased osmotic pressure of the solution just collapsed the small protozoa instead of just slowing them! The magnifications of these organisms can best be judged by the numerous QuickTime Movies I have make from this sample! As for the VIDCAPS, I have often cropped them and blown them up! There appeared to be a species of Coleps! One seemed to be in the act of cellular division in which the covering plates have been split between the two organisms leaving them uncovered in the still connected segmentsPic! The small crustacea is unknown to me! It is magnified 100 times! The small snake like organism Pic, I have no idea about! The Euglena Pic was very active and motile!
