    These are the best pictures i've managed to date. all pictures were taken in macro mode no more than 1/2" from the lens(the thickness of my glass is aprox 1/2"). copepods are tiny tiny little buggers I was happy to see then even showed up at all.

    I'll add isopod when I clean my screen in the next day or two.

    my old 3.1mp cannon A410 isn't the greatest camera in the world. But if you want to take a picture of something standing still or moving slowly at 1/2" from the lens..its among the best!

    I have two pictures of isopods. A normal isopod and..apparently a green one. I found mostly the regular type but mixed in with them were some that were this brilliant green color.
