My first observation a flea

For my first observation with my new Foldscope I wanted to go back to a Robert Hooke classic, the flea. Last summer my cat got fleas, so I collected some and preserved them in alcohol. I made this perminant slide. This image is full frame, no cropping, taken with an iPhone 6 and the Foldscope . I like it! The magnet that hangs by the ID number held the glass slide in position well for the photo. I Free held the phone for this one and that worked well. I can see if you were going to pass it around or do many photos attaching it with the magnet would be handy.
