2015 Nikon Microscopy Winners

In my bio lab this week, my professor showed the class a few pictures of this year’s best microscope photograph contest winners (hosted by Nikon):

It is pretty incredible to see how colorful, strange, and wonderfully complex our world truly is – especially on such a small scale! I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes it makes me feel equally creeped out and in awe. There’s so much life happening beyond what the naked eye can see.
