Small world pictures

Time-waster alert: stunning photographs, free screen-savers and wallpapers.


The Small world competition website has some stunning micrographs, photographs taken through a microscope.

I found it easiest to get to the gallery and click my way through them as a slideshow. They also sell a calendar and have archives back to 1977 that include large, high-resolution, screensaver images. Go for it, people!
