This magnified picture shows the fine details of the the shaft and barbs on a feather. I took the picture with a "Pro-Scope". This amazing device hooks up to the computer and takes pictures in 50x magnification. I received it at a science workshop I attended. The wonderful part is that I get to keep the Pro-Scope for my classroom. Click on the picture to see some of the other images I have generated with this new tool (toy). You will be amazed.
I named this the Pearl Blog because my name means Pearl of God.
