Corals under the confocal microscope
Confocal images of corals (Pocillopora damicornis), turned into a timelapse video, taken by Amy Eggers and myself at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology. The red dots are algal symbiodinium and the green and blue colours are the innate fluorescence of the coral (no dyes are added). The first images show the mesenterial filaments (extensions of its stomach) exuding from the mouth, the other 2 are images of the polyps extending and retracting. This video was submitted in the inaugural Timelapse category in the BBC Natural History Museum Wildlife photographer of the year competition. It reached the final, but did not place. Music written, performed and provided by Clive Knapp (my father).
