The Ocean Under a Microscope
Take a look at the gorgeous images from the Nikon Small World photomicrography competition.
One — just one — of my faves. Wow. Beautiful:
Glassy Radiolarian Beauty The shells of radiolarians rank among some of the treasures of the ocean, with their intricate, gorgeous geometry. The shells are made of silica, which protects the single-celled animals as they drift as zooplankton in the ocean. This image, taken at 120x zoom, was an honorable mention in the 2012 Nikon Small World photomicrography competition. Credit: Ralph Claus Grimm / Nikon Small World
