"Small World" Photomicrography

I am endlessly fascinated by the complex world of which I am a part.

There are infinite continuous levels of reality- from the spectrum of the cosmic phenomena of the very large, to the tiny features below our threshold of perception.

The Monkey Buddha Archives:

With advances in technology & photographic techniques, it is now possible to visually experience things that have never been able to be seen before.

On this isn't happiness, I saw some awe-inspiring photos from Nikon's photography competition that focuses on microscopic phenomena.


 The website has galleries of entries going back a few decades.

Here are a few of my favorite images from this year's competition:

Conochilus unicornis (rotifer), actively feeding. (Charles Krebs, Washington, USA) 
Ceriodaphnia sp. (water flea). (Rogelio Moreno, Panama)
 Paramecium division. (Arturo Agostino, Italy)
 Ant eye. (Noah Fram-Schwartz, Connecticut, USA)
