Dear all,

I am attempting to use image analysis to count and calculate earthworm
size distributions (Eisenia fetida) in a sample of several hundred worms. 
I need to take a digital image of motionless earthworms however these
worms must be returned to their habitat virtually unaffected by their

The worms must be motionless for the digital image (photograph) and
preferably without muscle tension.  I would appreciate any suggestions of
how this task may be achieved.

Many thanks

Michael Taylor
