I was lucky enough to get an electron microscope for my birthday the other week.
Only weighs 3 tonnes and they have to throw some more uranium rods on the local nuclear power-station when I switch it on (to avoid widespread brown-outs), but it gives you an amazingly Lilliputian view of the world.
Here’s Anemone Hupehensis var Japonica and an unidentified buzzy thing.
Expect more from the land of Jonathon Swift in the near future.
>You had a birthday, and I didn't know about it?! Am fascinated by this piece of equipment. Guess I'll have to google it to find out what it is. The photo is smashing…terrific!
>Looks like you'll need a decent tripod as well … Happy Birthday!!!
>I agree with Virginia and bonne anniversaire, OF — Hey, I know what that means, V!
>I want to see that new gizmo. Is it part of your camera or what???? This is a superior macro shot JB. you're going to have some fun with this new toy. And Happy Birthday. That makes you a certifiable O.F. V
