A Single Drop Of Sea Water Magnified 25 Times
David Liittschweger, an experienced marine wildlife and microfauna photographer, has created a revealing image that illustrates just how much life can be present in a single drop of sea water. The drop of water, which has been magnified 25 times, is home to bacteria, worms, fish eggs, crab larva, diatoms, and a bunch of other microorganism that cannot be seen with the naked eye. The crab larva on the bottom right is especially cute and cuddly! Dive-shield.us even created a diagram labeling some of the organisms found in Liittschweger’s work. (via)

yupyepyipyapshabadabadub… looks like you could make a higly nutritous soup just by boiling sea water… not for vegetarians though..
True! Though, it’s just slightly freaky that there are minuscule crabs and the like in just a drop of water…and we swim in it!
The fact that we swim in it is not the worst thing…. sometime happens that by accident we swallow it…uuuuh :(((
