16 - Measurement of gall 3-4mm
17 - Abaxial (underside of) leaf showing 2 gall marks
18 - Close up of gall mark on underside
19 - Bisected gall (used a razor blade)
20 - Close up of interior of gall; mites visible
21 - Close up of interior of gall; mites visible
22 - Additional gall showing exterior structure
23 - Additional gall has only a slight stem, making it appear (to the eye) on the leaf surface

Video Link: https://youtu.be/VByatNDqJ64

More details:
- I used a razor blade and plastic tweezers for dissection
- Some photos are with my Samsung S9 cell phone camera, others with my Olympus and a 60mm macro lens. (Next time I'll switch to a diff lens to get better pics.)
- Microscopic views are at 40x. I tried to get 100x images of the mites, but I'll need to find a way to separate them from the gall for next time.
- Microscopic images are taken with my cell phone held up to the microscope eye piece. Not the best solution, but it worked for a first try. I've requested a SEM for Christmas. ;)
- Video is taken the same way as the microscopic still images. Note that the lens on lens caused distortion, and the camera tries to auto-focus as well. Things I'll try to find a better solution to for next time.
