Part of my motive for going back to that stump moss today was that I had just learned how to stack pictures in photoshop and I wanted something to practice on. Here are some of the pictures I took today, a few of them are stacked. Stacking pictures gives the same result as using an auto montage microscope, it evens out the depth of field so the whole photo is in focus.
|This is 11 photos stacked together. It shows the weak ridges on the back of the costa|
|This shows just one row of guide cells and very small ridges|
|This shows that the alar cells gradually transition into rectangular cells|
|This stacked photo shows the teeth or spines on the back of the costa, by stacking the images both the spines|
and the leaf cells are in focus at the same time
