A fascinating look at some of the microscopic organisms living in pond water. The short film by nature photographer Daniel Stoupin shows water fleas, bryozoans, water mites, mayfly nymphs, ostracods, and hydras jumping, crawling, and floating around in an alien environment filled with algae and ciliates.
This video uses images that I made through a biological microscope and macro lenses. I believe that macro work added more depth and allows seeing whole animals in a more natural environment. The average size of the animals filmed was less than 1 mm.
