I photograph microorganisms. Many microorganisms call Prospect Park home. This particular organism is a species of green algae called Micrasterias. Here, it is magnified 400 times. It is a single cell consisting of two perfectly symmetrical semi-cells. These algae are common in freshwater, particularly still bodies of water such as the ponds and lakes of Prospect Park.
