I bought a new toy to start the new year. It is a microscope/boroscope with a usb cord connection. It looks something like this:
In fact, the photo was taken with video camera included. The camera is low resolution–only 2 M pixels, and must be tethered to a computer in order to be used. It can be used as a low power microscope and has led lights for illumination. It also focuses to infinity.
I plan to check in the nests of digger bees and some ant mounds when the weather turns nicer.
Wait and see.
