Nature As You’ve Never Seen It Before

Yeah, yeah, nature is beautiful, and all that … but have you really seen it up close? The Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition, according to their website, “honors the world’s most extraordinary microscope images of life science subjects,” and extraordinary they are. This year’s winner, Charles Krebs, photographed the feeding of Rotifer Floscularia ringens, with its cilia carrying water containing food. You can check out the runners up and other honorable mentions, as well as galleries from years past, at the Olympus BioScapes website.
