Butterfly leg under Foldscope

I am Riya, from Bangalore, India. I am in eighth grade. I am attaching two pictures of the butterfly leg – one (Figure a) taken with high lighting from the LED magnifier, and the other (Figure b) taken with low light setting on the LED. I wanted to share these two pictures so that other students experimenting with the Foldscope understand the effect of lighting on the picture quality. I am also attaching the pictures of the “feet” of the butterfly and the hair-like structures on the leg.

I am currently working on a project using the Foldscope. I will soon post pictures from the project on this website.
