Description:

Tried taking some pictures of a water flea under my microscope. From looking online, I'm pretty sure it is a daphnia species, but I'm not sure if there are keys available that would allow me to identify it further.
Apologies for the quality of the pictures, still figuring out how to take pictures through the scope and get the light right etc.,
Also, if better pictures of particular features are needed for an ID, please say. I have plenty of daphnia in my pond and I'm happy to have another go at photographing one.
