Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition

Teresa Zgoda, everted scolex (head) of a Taenia solium (tapeworm), magnified 200x. I don't think those are eyes, but wow.

Dr. Ryo Egawa, individually labeled axons in an embryonic chick ciliary ganglion magnified 30x. #

Charles Krebs, the eye of an Opiliones (daddy longlegs) magnified 20x

Havi Sarfaty, Senecio vulgaris (groundsel, a flowering plant) seed head, magnified 2x; these are annoying weeds in my garden but this is lovely.

Walter Piorkowski, moth eggs in spider silk, magnified 16x

Laurie Knight, simple eyes of an Ectemnius (digger wasp), with condensation, magnified 20x.

Jan Rosenboom, the face of a small moth magnified 5x. These are big image files worth clicking on. Many more at the competition web site.
