Microscope Photography - The Natural World Is Beautiful Edition

in #photography3 months ago

Greetings, Hive fam! I haven't done a microscope photography session in a while, and I'm glad I did today. It's fun exploring my world up close, and it lifted my mood. :)

I really love this photo! This is bone. A horse femur, to be precise (I'm a Pagan, I have a horse femur on my altar, mmmkay? And before you ask, no, I did not kill a horse. I bought it from a shop who got it from someone who found it out in the wilds). This is the porus end where a joint would have been.

This is along the smooth side, which has a long crack in it (no, I have no idea if the fracture was there when the horse was alive or not or if it happened because the bone dried out later after death).

Because this came up last time, my microscope is just one of these pen microscopes with a turn wheel that doesn't tell you what precise magnification you're on when you stop and take a photo, so I just turn until I get a clear image. Nothing is on slides, I am literally pointing and shooting, lol.

This is a copper bead that is smooth on the outside, not etched. Looks like an intentional design, doesn't it?

You can see the middle joint in this photo

This is a fern leaf from my Boston fern plant. :D

This is a small amethyst cluster. In this photo you can see the crystal, and in this one:

...it's at a much higher magnification.

These two black images are a piece of charcoal.

This is beach sand! Yes I live in landlocked Colorado but I have some in a jar, lol.

Sand is so pretty under a microscope! :)

This is a leaf on my jade plant. ^_^

This is the broken end of a stick that I found fallen on the ground. This angle is with the microscope pointing at the splinters head on, as in, the pen was parallel to the stick, and the next one:

...is looking at the wood from the side. I'm afraid I don't know specifically what type of wood this is.

And last but not least, this is the bottom end of a pinecone!

It kinda looks like bunches of some tiny eggs, doesn't it? Plant eggs. LOL

Thank you for coming with me on my microscope journey today. I hope you found it as fascinating as I do! :) Let me know if you have any ideas of what you'd like me to photograph next!

Wow, many incredible images and being able to look at this world that in our daily life is practically invisible is a sensational experience.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)

The copper and the sand were very aesthetically pleasing!!

Those were some of my faves too! I could put those up on the wall as art! :D
