It is so fascinating! It is a world in a world and absolutely amazing. But it can be so darned difficult too ;) and you need a heck of patience for it.

it is not for a microscopic analysis, it just to take zoomed pictures. The microscopy it’s another thing for a near future, I expect.

This seems to be a stereo microscope

but I have no experience with this digital stuff.
My working microscope is 15 years old and still the best and with classical design.

some “digital microscopes” that claim to zoom (5x-500X) but with only 2 Mega pixel. Just to take zoomed pictures. It’s cheap, but I don’t know if it worths the while.

something that looks like this: http://www.preciolandia.com/...

with those little critters. Yesterday I photoed Trochila ilicina (will post soon) and you will need to magnify the pic to see it. Still too expensive those cameras for me and too heavy to carry. Not my priority to carry such cameras with me. I had a titan analogue camera which was heavy as hell for many years but got really weary of that weight in the end.
Camellia is a good guess and another interesting host.

my cam macro is not enough for this things. They seem round and yellowish on the back (first 2 pics)

For sure I don’t know

but it seems a camellia leave. It was on my street, and I have neighboors with camellia hedges.

Very cool!

Which leaf is it?
And maybe I could look at this too? Although I am afraid this will be very difficult to ID.
