New Microscope Fun

Cool image, huh? We got a new microscope - teeny tiny - for only $5 and we were off in search of things to look at. This small beetle-type bug was crawling around, so I stuck it temporarily in a plastic bag to take a closer look. The bumpy surface it is on is the weave of a cloth napkin.

It took three of us to get the photo... me to hold the microscope, Charles to position the phone camera, and K to push the button. Wish I had thought of the phone camera on Friday when we were amazed by the gorgeous detail of flowers, even seemingly simple ones!
