Life at 400x

This latest photographic project has been possible due to my stint student teaching 7th and 8th grade science, specifically my unit on cell biology.  I have access to an AverVision document viewer with a microscope adapter where I can photograph what the microscope sees.  The resolution on these is too low for print, but I’ve already started looking into other methods of micro-photography.

I have 2 weeks of access to the microscope, any suggestions for what to examine next?
