Being a large fan of all things small, particularly when one is able to take photos of them, I bring you this:

Yes, the results for this year’s Nikon Small World competition are in.  Each year, the competition takes in entries of the best microscopy on the web, and then hurls awards at the ones it likes the most.

Or something.

I remember spending hours happily closeted with a very large and expensive fluorescent  microscope, taking perdy pictures of the neural cells with which I was playing for my Honours degree.  At the time, my supervisor mentioned that microscopists were in increasing demand overseas, and whenever I see images like this, I wonder whether I should have become one of these.

After all, it’s photography with science.  Two of my bestest things.

So, what’s your favourite image?

UPDATE:

I also came across this fabulous video of an octopus being very balletic…
