Thought some of you might appreciate this. It's a Euglena alga which has undergone binary fission in order to asexually reproduce a duplicate of it's DNA, and then laterally splits to produce another individual. Probably sat there for like 45 minutes looking at the thing.
Lovely clear picture. I don't understand how you managed to keep it in focus because it was moving and there were lots of other unfocussed creatures moving about behind it. I loved the way the 'baby' just moves off unconcerned at the end while the 'mother' doesn't seem to realize that seperation has taken place and keeps contracting. Lovely film.
