These are 2019’s most amazing microscopic photos

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.

Cover: Octopus embryo by Martyna Lukoseviciute and Dr. Carrie Albertin

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.”
