Caption: Camera attempts to keep up with a speeding Paramecium caudatum, a ciliated protozoan, as it spirals its way through pond water. If you could blow one up to the size of a sports car, its speed would be equivalent to more than 160 miles an hour. Recorded under Nomarski DIC with a horizontal field of view of approximately 2000.
