If there is one thing we have learned from the corona virus infection, it is the very small, new respect.
But just as dangerous as the microcosm, it is full of stunning shapes, brilliant colors, and often mysterious biological and physical processes.
In that vein, Nikon has announced the winners of the Small World: Camera Company’s 46th microscope or microscope photography, competition.
Judges Dylan Burnett, Christophe Letterier, Samantha Clark, Sean Green and Ariel Waltman reviewed more than 2,000 entries from scientists, artists and entertainment enthusiasts from 90 countries around the world.
