Oscillatoria animalis cyanobacteria, differential interference contrast (DIC) micrograph. The genus name for this cyanobacterium comes from the movement it makes as it orientates itself to the brightest light source available, from which it gains energy by photosynthesis. Each filament or trichome is 5 microns in diameter.
