Riesenmammut klein

In the current magazine of the Verein fuer Tier- und Naturfotografie (VTNOE) I describe in an article the most important steps for the preparation of conifer needles and how I photograph them afterwards under the microscope. Currently I process the needles either "fresh" or fixed and stained. The advantages and disadvantages of each method are briefly described. If you want more information or want to try photographing with the microscope yourself, you can do so in my workshop.
