this post: a naturally occurring meniscus, formed by chemical processes in the bog-peat of a norfolk fen. the thin surface films are made of iron salts. insoluble iron compounds precipitate out of the submerged, deoxygenated environment. anaerobic bacteria concentrate the iron as part of their life process. their fuzzy movement can be when viewed under a compound microscope as they jostle and vibrate within the interference colours of the iron slick.
