Published Oct 25, 2019

Nikon’s annual Small World photo competition highlights the beautiful elements of nature that can only be seen through the lens of a microscope.

1st Place – Fluorescent turtle embryo by Teresa Zgoda and Teresa Kugler

The first prize went to this image of a turtle embryo, shot by microscopy technician Teresa Zgoda and recent university graduate Teresa Kugler, using a combination of fluorescence and stereomicroscopy. The striking capture beautifully combines their passion for art and science.

“Microscopy lets us get a better look at the small things in life. It allows me to do science with a purpose.”

“We are inspired by the beautiful images we see through the microscope. It’s amazing to be able to share that science with other people.”
