They are there because I didn’t put the coverslip down carefully enough. The bubbles are easier to get rid of if I mount in soapy water. The soap destroys the surface tension so the bubbles don’t stick to the sample.

in your first micro shot, Pileipellis 100x in KOH, are those air pockets separating the gills? How did you do that?
