Caption: Vorticella protozoa. Differential interference contrast micrograph of a colony of Vorticella sp.. This ciliate protozoan consists of a bell-shaped head and a stalk that is anchored to the substrate. The cilia (tiny hair-like structures) attached to the head are used to capture food and also for movement. Magnification: x75 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
