The 2009 contest offered up more exciting images of life through the lens of a light microscope. While you are on their site, you might want to look at the archives – 35 years worth of images. And here is a gallery of images that I haven’t seen before – the Nikon MicroscopyU Digital Eclipse Image Gallery. Lots of inspiration there too – below are two of my favorites.
