One of the easiest microscope slides to make is one of a fly’s wing. I found an already dead one and ripped a wing off. Then I placed it between the clear stickers mounted on one of the included paper slides.
The clear stickers from the FoldScope kit work better than the tape I had been using. Looking at it through the FoldScope, I could see a lot of details I would have never noticed without a microscope.
There were “hairs” on this wing.
One picture shows some larger hairs and the other one shows the edge of the fly’s wing.
The center parts of the wing also showed some interesting details.
Here are some pictures of the actual fly (or one just like it) that the wing was from. Just a normal house fly, probably Musca domestica. It was found on a bathroom counter.
