Dear Lenny and others,

The American Society of Microbiology has a very good website for
educational materials (http://www.microbelibrary.org/).  Included are
photos of a large number of organisms such as Legionella pneumophila. They
also have an extensive biofilm collection.

I hope this is helpful.
