Caption: Light micrograph in phase contrast illumination of several Vorticella sp. on a green algae. Vorticella is a genus of single-cell protozoans, with a long retractable stalk and a flattened head. At the top of the head is the mouth, surrounded by many fine cilia hairs. These create a vortex in the surrounding water, washing food particles into the mouth. Magnification x100 at 35mm size.
