Four algae cells showing cilia around edge from Hopwas Canal

Ean Ean and I collected the sample of water from Hopwas canal 19/4/2018 and today I viewed it in the Zeiss IM microscope using 40x objective. The picture below shows multiple cilia (hair-like structures) around edge of the cells which the cells use to move around. I have used Curves function in GIMP2 to enhance the image to demonstrate these cilia more effectively.
