More phytoplankton and zooplankton

DSCF0522.JPG

Mostly diatoms with a couple of zooplankton as seen under a phase contrast microscope. View about 1.4mm across. Slightly concentrated this view is about one drop of sea water from the bay. The plant part (phytoplankton such as diatoms) are a major source of food for oysters and clams.
