    1. As is usual for me I never know what I've got until I have a close look afterwards. I was amazed by these beautiful shapes. You're right they do look like RBCs. I was reminded of a cough lolly (Vox) we used to get as kids. They were red and really strong. Posted 2 months ago
      1. I can relate! All too often, I don't see the details until I get the photos uploaded. Posted 2 months ago
