A first attempt at the microscope thing (and a near get-away)

I have yet to figure out how to get a "full-frame" view like what my eye sees (eg. the whole bug at once) vs. this "pinhole view" with a regular camera, despite that said site makes it sound easy.

 

Either way, this is kind of interesting; I noticed this bug in a water dish for one of my plants, my guess is it's some sort of larvae.. Which kind, I have no idea.

 

The bug is maybe 2 mm in length, I think this is at ~400x magnification.
