So you all obviously know by now that I do like micrography and I wanted to share with you guys a picture that I took for work that’s not going into my lab notebook (since I have more informative ones).

These are E. coli I tagged with green fluorescence on their fimbria (tiny hairs that let cells stick to surfaces) and these pictures are from a confocal microscope. The top picture is a phase contrast (just light) photo while the one beneath that is the same except using fluorescence so you can see they are expressing fimbria. The bottom photo is the composite I created from both microscopes.
