Figure A: The knee of a bee
I recently bought a 80-800x USB microscope. It has really good quality for less than $40, and I’ve been using it to get up close and personal with crystals, dead bugs, and gross parts of my anatomy. Feast your eyes!
A wasp, with a bizarre, insectile tonguemouththing. Proboscis. Weird.
One of my moles. Maybe it’s time I get it looked at, hm?
I wasn’t too thrilled to find out that I had warts, but they grow on you.
Iridescence in a bead of thermite residue.

I hope to get some polarizing filters and videotape the growth of chiral crystals, like sugar or vitamin C. Stay tuned…
