While viewing this nice pic, I feel like a predator viewing my prey item via a "temperature X-ray" device.
Very neat work there liocheles.

Olympus microscope, the pic is under 10x lens enlargement.
i'm using methyl red staining, got another that using iodine staining, but this one more clear with background staining rather than iodine that used to check out the morphology of the mites.
