    Dear Dr. Prakash,

    Thanks for your appreciation. The footage was an outcome of a long-period observation of aphid infested plant under foldscope.

    A slide was prepared by superimposing the provided paper-slides into several layers. Sufficient space was crated between the paper-slides for accommodating the aphids for proper aeration and movement.

    The sample was prepared by taking a small portion of leaf which was infested with aphids and it was kept in the created space/gap. and then both sides were sealed with cello tape. The entire behavior of the aphid was recorded over a long period of time to derive a good footage,
