  1. Great video! I was looking at some of these a couple of days ago but couldn’t get them to stay in focus long enough to get a decent video 😦

    • I took that in fairly cool weather, maybe they were sluggish?
      I believe you can add glycerin (from the supermarket) to slow the animacules down a bit although I haven’t tried it myself.

  2. There is a classic science fiction story called Surface Tension by James Blish that has tiny intelligent creatures battling rotifers. A great read!

  3. Tiny humans those were, in the Blish story. Good story.

    Love the movie, Penny. Thanks. Here in Oklahoma, the rotifers are different, and I need to get some stills and movies up on my webserver to show them.
