Welcome to my website! My name is Walter D. Machielsen and I’d like to show you pictures that I am making through a microscope (microphotos)

Ever since I got a plastic toy microscope from Father Christmas (40 years ago now), I’ve been fascinated by the invisible world around us. Animal and vegetable creatures so small that one would not notice them with the bare eye, as well as interesting details from a.o. insects and small flowers keep on drawing my attention. It’s a good thing that technology nowadays allows us to make microphoto’s in a much easier way than 20 or 30 years ago, and share them with the rest of the world.

Hope you’ll be inspired and entertained by the posted images. The website is still brand new so it’s more or less still under development.
