This site is a for-profit organization that sells high quality images. While the images and videos are nice to look at, they are not free to use. A watermark is placed prominently across all materials and the fine print indicates a user license fee is required. This is not OER, but if you need a high quality image and have the money to spend.. then this site may be useful to you.

through the catalog link, which presents a full screen version of the image with
a brief description. Any of these images can be used with permission of Denis
SEM, however it actually connects to a site that contains minimal instruction
on SEM but where the user can zoom in on selected specimens. Detailed views of
selected organisms, as well as explanatory text, can also be accessed through
the Most Wanted Bugs link and the Zoom In link. There is also a link to a very brief
introduction to microscopy.
