I was examining some rainwater from my backyard in Richmond, VA, and found this microorganism. I took some pictures of it at 400x and 1000x (see below). The microorganism is attached to some moss and appears to be using it as an anchor while hunting/feeding. While feeding, it stretches out and searches for food, and once it catches something, it snaps back into itself. I also got some pictures of the microorganism while resting.
I'm not sure what this is and would appreciate any input. Thanks!
