A spirochaete biofilm observed in a thin film smear from a periferal blood drop. Fixed with methanol and experimentally stained with Lugol’s iodine (Gram stain) which accounts for some of the unusual colouring. Micrographs edited for levels, noise and sharpness. Original 6Mp photos available. Magnification 1500x with camera zoom up to 105mm
