The Toe of the Learning Curve

The creatures in this image are easier to appreciate visually as mites than most in the images I have to share. These are prepared: stained dark and washed. To imagine them as they normally appear in wet tissue, imagine them transparent and colorless, about the size of a comma in 12 point type, or slightly larger, and coated with shiny secretions and perhaps leucocytes. They look like tiny shreds of cellophane.
