See the complex motion of the flagellum of an immobilized mouse sperm. These images were taken using dark-field microscopy, with the recorded image inverted to show the cell as dark against a light background. As the flagellum undulates, notice the presence of smaller secondary waves superimposed upon the large back-and-forth primary waves.
