Kodachrome 35 mm Transparency by W.P. Armstrong, September 1981
This minute plant is seldom seen and it is rarely observed in flower. In fact, some botanists have stated in the literature that it only reproduces asexually by budding and no longer produces flowers! Floating on the water surface, it is a difficult subject to photograph. Image taken through a Bausch & Lomb Dissecting Microscope with a Nikon FM-2 camera and Kodachrome 64 Film.
