APHOTOMARINE

An educational resource dedicated mainly to the photography
and diversity of marine life that can be found in coastal waters
and intertidal areas of Great Britain and Ireland by David Fenwick.

Marine bacteria (Marine bacteria images)
When I started this project I did not think I would be photographing bacteria with a standard camera, or would be including bacteria on the website. I've since found that there are a few single-celled bacteria that are nearly visible to the naked eye which warrants their inclusion here, but I must add that they'd not be included at all if it wasn't for the expert help that I have received, I just find them!
