2015 Photomicrography Competition | Nikon's Small World

◆ 1st place
The first place in FY 2015 was the work of Ralph Claus Grimm living in Queensland, Australia. It captured the compound eye of a honey bee (Apis mellifera) at a magnification of 120 times, and it is pollen of dandelion that adheres to one side. It is highly appreciated that it reminds me of how the bees look at the world with compound eyes, human beings do not know much yet, as well as finish capturing fine objects.

Second place
The 2nd prize was selected by Kristen Earle of Stanford University Medical School et al. It is a 63-fold enlargement of the colon of the mouse to which human microflora (so) adheres. The structure of the colon (blue) and the flora (red) separated by mucosal layers (green) are captured.
