Picture of Green Algae from Pond Water

This is a picture of pond water under a foldscope. The water is from the Caltech turtle pond. It was obtained on 4/11/19 at 6:40PM. It was fished from the pond. Green algae can be seen in the picture. The domain of the organism in the image (green algae) is eukaryote. I know this because the organism is immobile and green. The green pigment indicates it has chloroplasts and undergoes photosynthesis. This is something prokaryotes and archea cannot do. Due to this, it can be understood that the organism is an eukaryote.
