A piece of Lycra was cut from a swimming costume and pinned to a microscope slide for observation and photomicrography. The sample was illuminated with two small electronic flash heads (Bowem Macro-lite) having in-built tungsten focusing lamps, one at 45 degrees and the other at 25 degrees to the horizontal. The photomacrographic equipment consisted of a Zeiss Tessovar. Photographed with Fujichrome Velvia. (12.5x)
