This is a cyclops photographed on a combound microscope. 24 images were combined to get adequate depth-of-field.

Danylo... there are indeed muscles and other tissue inside the legs, but it just doesn't show in "brightfield" illumination. I guess the refractive index of the tissue is too close to that of water. It becomes more obvious with different types of contrast "enhancing" illumination. It is especially obvious when used crossed polarized lighting. I'll attach a picture of the legs of another micro-creature that was taken using cross polarization and you can see how well the tissue can be seen with this illumination.
