Here are 77 VidCaps I made from a Lake near Mud Lake in Boulder County, Colorado! I choose this Lake because it was near Mud Lake and unlike Mud Lake it was stream fed! I wanted to see the differences in Micro Life content from Mud Lake and a Stream Fed Lake near it!!
I collected water samples from Mud Lake and this Lake Near Mud Lake on September 23, 2005! I examined water from this Lake near Mud Lake on the third, sixth, eighth, tenth and the Twentieth day after I collected the water! One can see from the names I have given each VidCap the day it was examined! The 'f' letter denotes the twentieth day of examination!!
I saw some very large Spirostomum in the water samples!! Pic I take these to be Spirostomum ambiguum ! They could not fit into the visual field of the setup I have on the Microscope and camera, so if not balled up or not having undergone division, I could not make VidCaps of an entire individual! There were smaller species of Spirostomum also! This is the first time I have observed Spirostomum ambiguum like species in Colorado! I also observed a species like Dileptus anser ! Pic I am not sure it is this species but it is the best example I can come up with! Lastly, I observed a species like Lacrymaria olor ! Pic The species had the long flexible neck; but seemed very slim for Lacrymaria olor I!
