A Flea

If you haven't already had the pleasure of seeing a flea, or just wanted to see one up close for once, and not crawling on your dog, this micro gigapan is for you.

This image is an initial test to see the utility of imaging flea samples using the incident light microscope. It was composed of 525 images, focus stacked with 21 images deep in a 5 x 5 array.

This flea, along with some others, was given to us by the Carnegie Mellon museum of natural history.
