Now laugh if you will, but I apologize for the slight bit of noise in some of these...the first on in particular. It's not too noticeable, but it's not on the prints. I got the Superstore to scan these and their scanner stinks.
1 & 2: The inner part of a recordable CD at 100x and 40x.
3: Controller circuit on the bottom of a hard disk drive at 40x.
4: Animal sells at 400x, from a prepared slide.
5: A cross section of a plant leaf at 400x, showing a vein near the middle.
6 & 7: Same as 5, cross section of a plant leaf showing the vein at 1000x. 7 Is focused nearer to the surface, while 6 is focused farther away slightly.
