1. Découverte d'un tardigrade (ourson d'eau) dans une goutte d'eau.
    J'étais entrain de filmer les nématodes dans la grosse goutte jaune et dans la petite goutte, quelques chose bougeait ! c'est en regardant chez moi les vidéos réalisées, que je me vu que c'était un tardigrade, mon premier observé en milieu naturel.

  2. Clemens Wirth & Radium Audio presents:
    Micro Empire

    ...moving on from Macro Kingdom, we pass through the portal of a microscope to venture into the Micro Empire ... surrounding us … inhabiting us …

    Stranger than fiction… molecular conflict and mitochondrial warfare … a heartstopping, subcellular epic … a truly microcinematic experience …

    “as an enthusiast for little things, I wanted to go deeper than the macro universe, so I found myself hanging on the eyepiece of a microscope. The real challenge was definitely the small depth of field in microscopy. It’s really fascinating how detailed this tiny world is.”

  3. Velvet worms, or peripatus as they're often known sit in their own Phyla, the Onychophora. Older than rock, these invertebrates first evolved over 500 million years ago and as an organism they've remained largely unchanged over that time. That makes them 1325 times older than our genus even by conservative standards. But these fascinating invertebrates are far more than the sum of their long history. They're not worms, they're not insects, they're something quite unique and special. If you want to know more go to http://www.jamesreardon.org

    Also staring a centipede, a little collembola and a pseudoscorpion.

    The little 13mm star of this short sequence is Ooperipatellus viridimaculatus from the South West of New Zealand's South Island. Filmed with a Black Magic Cinema Camera using bellows lens, 30p conformed to a 25p timeline, iso800 (very photophobic little chaps) ProRes HQ, coloured with Colourista II in Premiere Pro CC.

  4. Ces petits animaux proches des insectes sont présents partout. Dans les sols principalement mais aussi dans la litière ou sur les fleurs. Certes, ils sont petits (quelques millimètres) mais si on se donne la peine de se pencher sur leur habitat, on découvre un monde étonnant de diversité de formes et de couleurs. Comme le reste de la petite faune des sols, les collemboles jouent un rôle important dans la fertilité de ceux-ci et leur présence, leur absence ou la composition de leurs communautés donnent des indications sur la qualité de l’environnement : ce sont de précieux bio-indicateurs.

    Au fil des pages, Jérôme Cortet lève le voile sur la vie de ces attachantes petites bêtes et les extraordinaires photographies de Philippe Lebeaux nous entraînent dans un voyage des plus dépaysant. Bienvenue sur la planète collemboles !

    Cette vidéo montre des comportements de collemboles filmés dans différents habitats naturels (sol forestier, prairie et mare naturelle).
    Les séquences filmées en full hd ont été réalisées en utilisant 2 réflexes numériques hybrides CANON 7D et CANON 5D MKIII - objectifs utilisés: CANON MPE-65mm - 100mm macro USM et divers accessoires ont été utilisés pour filmer les séquences.
    -------------------------
    Collembola or springtails, a lineage of hexapods that no longer belongs to the class Insecta, are everywhere. Mainly in soils, but also in litter or on flowers. Sure, they are small (a few millimeters), but if one takes the trouble to look into their habitat, one discovers an amazing world of diversity of shapes and colours. Like the rest of the small soil fauna, springtails play an important role in its fertility, and their presence, absence or community composition provides guidance on the quality of the environment: they are valuable bio-indicators.

    Throughout these pages, Jérôme Cortet unveils the life of these endearing little creatures, and the extraordinary photographs of Philippe Lebeaux take the reader on an exotic journey. Welcome to Planet Collembola!

    This video shows the behaviour of Collembola filmed in different habitats (forest soil, grassland and natural mare). The footage in full hd was performed using 2 reflexes digital hybrid CANON 7 D and CANON 5 D MKIII - lenses used: CANON MPE - 65 mm - 100 mm macro USM and various accessories have been used to shoot sequences.
