Day 1915, under a microscope.

Daily picture, Poetry

I observed what I entangled

very close today

and it was scary

My girlfriend bought a microscope at the thrift store this weekend, something we both always wanted. It’s not some kind of toy either, it is from the 1960’s but it was used professionally. We still have to learn some things but we already looked at water from the creek a 1000 times magnified and that was really cool. All kinds of things were moving around there squeezed between those two glass plates as if nothing was hindering them. In this picture you see a leg of the tiniest fly I could peel of the flytrap, it’s magnified a 100 times, I took the picture with my phone’s lens pressed against one of the oculars.
