bring something to see

One of my favorite ways to procrastinate in lab is at the microscope. I'll scrape up some water from a murky puddle or from the bottom of a flower vase and gaze at all the critters scurrying around.

 

I don't need a gift, but please bring something to the party that you think might be fun to magnify. It can be a liquid or solid, alive or dead, tiny or fist sized, transparent or opaque.

 

See below for ideas.
