To see small plants in more detail, I used a light microscope and photographed my view using my smartphone, ‘looking’ through the eyepiece. As I know nothing about plants (yet!), I don’t know which species I was looking at but seeing the shapes and textures was very interesting.
I studied biomedical sciences and researched molecular origins of Parkinson's disease for my PhD. Since graduation, I have worked as a science writer, technical author, and medical writer. In my spare time I enjoy writing, illustration, crafts, reading, and travelling.View all of alexvanderwateren's posts.
