Hoffman Modulation Contrast Image Gallery

Water fleas are some of the most fascinating creatures found in stagnant pond water. Careful observation reveals their rapidly beating heart and frantic movement of the "antenna" and thoracic appendages.
This specimen was captured in mid-flight using Hoffman modulation contrast illumination at low magnification.
