Daphnia, Unfertilized eggs can be seen incubating along the back of this momma water flea. Female water fleas don’t need males to reproduce. Through a process called parthenogenesis, unfertilized eggs can develop into fully functional offspring. Male water fleas are only born in response to conditions of cold or drought, and when water fleas do mate, they produce a special kind of egg with tough protective shell, called a winter egg.

One-eyed monster  The eye of a giant water flea (Leptodora kindtii) stares into the microscope for this Nikon Small World image, captured by the Micropolitan Museum's Wim van Egmond. Differential interference contrast was used to create a sharp rendering of the eye.

Beautiful creature: Wim van Egmond of the Micropolitan Museum in Rotterdam, Netherlands photographed a Leptodora kindtii (giant waterflea) eye from a living specimen using the differential interference contrast method.

Juggling algae A water flea (Daphnia sp.) seems to be juggling round balls of green algae (Volvox sp.) in this darkfield photomicrograph, entered in the Nikon Small World competition by Ralf Wagner of Dusseldorf, Germany.

Larvae: Although adult echinoderms (sea stars and kin) we are used to seeing have radial symmetry, their larvae start out with bilateral as do most vertebrates. These larval brittle stars are an important pelagic stage for dispersal of their bottom-bound parents. They capitalize on the abundance of food in the plankton to support early growth prior to metamorphosis and settlement to the sea floor.
