Tiny Beauties: Life’s Smallest Wonders As Seen Through a Microscope |

Thank you to Teagan for sending me this. Stunning pictures from the Olympus Bioscapes Digital Imaging Competition, I particularly admire the picture of the Paramecium. Oh my, oh my, oh my!

Can I produce work like that? I’m not sure. Probably, given ten years or so of practice! I can’t produce the fluorescent images in my kitchen/home laboratory but frankly I don’t need fluorescence. There is plenty of beauty to be found without fluorescent antibodies.

Very inspiring. I really must get on with finishing the paint work on this Cooke Troughton and Simms microscope.
