Caption: Waterflea feeding on Volvox green algae. Brightfield illuminated light micrograph of a waterflea (Chydorus sphaericus, upper right) trying to feed on a Volvox globator colony (centre). Volvox are small, colonial green algae that make up a larger spherical colony, almost acting as a multicellular organism. The bright green spheres within the colony are daughter colonies. Waterfleas are small aquatic crustaceans. Magnification: x56 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
