Magnified Black Bee-eater Feathers

The other day I saw a photo of a peacock feather under the microscope and it looked stunning. It got me wondering what some of the feathers I have collected look like. So I got my X400 USB microscope out and some of the more colourful feathers in my collection and took some photos. Below is the first  one. It's a black bee-eater. the magnification is X400, X25 and X1.
