ok so two months ago my family broke out all the stuff from my parents collage years. in the stuff i found a science kit that my mom had and in it their was a bunch of stuff including this

at first i only thought it was a weird flashlight until i looked through the hole at the top and saw it was a pocket microscope! i've now used it a lot looking at ants. today while outside i saw some tetramorium workers in a fight! then thinking this will be so much cooler if it was close up i ran to get the microscope. it was the coolest thing i've ever saw and it was like looking at a cheesy national geographic or nature channel show but it was real and it just amazed me. here are some of what i saw (i apologize for the bad photos just imagine this 10 times better and moving)
