Quite the mouthful

Monday, May 5, 2014 by Molly Meserve

Imagine it’s a hot, sunny day and you are at the beach...waves are crashing and you make a run for the water. You dive in and come up with a mouthful of nice salty water. Has this happened to you? If so, you may have swallowed a bit more than you thought.


One photographer, David Littschwager, magnified a single drop of water and found an amazing amount of life including crab larva, diatoms, bacteria, fish eggs, zooplankton, worms, and more!
