5th Place: Oral surface of a young seastar (40x)

This cute little guy is a juvenile seastar who just went through metamorphosis.
It was likely accidentally caught by researchers netting plankton, and happened to transform in captivity.

In the wild, the free-roaming larva’s maturation would have necessitated a move to the bottom of the sea where it would have spent the rest of its life.

6th Place: Discus fish scales (20x)

Originating in the Amazon, the discus fish is becoming an increasingly popular aquarium fish due to the ease of its care.
Known for their striking colors, discus are considered to fall into one of three species – green, red or blue/brown.

Hormones and food coloring are sometimes used by sellers to enhance the color of these fish.
Not only will these dyes fade over time, they can also do serious harm to the fish.

10th Place: Algae and diatoms (10x)



Courtesy Nikon Small World Photo Micrography Competition: Photographed by Dr. Arlene Wechezak

Algae are often thought of as the pesky green gunk covering undisturbed ponds and lakes.
What you might not realize, though, is the role algae and diatoms (which are actually oceanic plankton themselves) play in balancing the earth’s climate.

History has shown that the two contribute to the removal of billions of tons of carbon dioxide every year. Dr. Arlene Wechezak says she chose this photograph to “bring public awareness of the complexity and beauty of marine organisms.”

12th Place: Flow pattern in draining soap film (10x)



Courtesy Nikon Small World Photo Micrography Competition: Photographed by Dr. Tsutomu Seimiya

This piece of surreal art shows the flow patterns in a thin film of soap.
A glass cylinder enclosed the flat soap film and kept it stable so that a close-up photograph could be taken.

The striking black pattern is fringed with numerous pearl-like beads, a result of the fluid dynamics of the film.

13th Place: Recrystallized melted mixture of acetanalide, resorcinal and carbon tetrabromide (33x)



Courtesy Nikon Small World Photo Micrography Competition: Photographed by Dr. John Hart

Simple chemistry creates an otherworldly structure in this image.

An organic solvent, an antiseptic and an outdated painkiller were combined to form this weird and complex crystal, illuminated with polarized light.

14th Place: Lobster egg (3.2x)



Courtesy Nikon Small World Photo Micrography Competition: Photographed by Tora Bardal

Nature’s artistry is on display in this picture of a lobster egg a few days before hatching.

The image was taken while scientists measured eye diameter, which is done to predict hatching time.
The photography and microscopy may not have been too fancy, but the patterns and colors certainly are.

15th Place: <i>Atherix ibis</i> (fly) aquatic larva (25x)



Courtesy Nikon Small World Photo Micrography Competition: Photographed by Fabrice Parais

What seems to be the head of some strange horned creature is actually the back end of a watersnipe fly larva.
These weirdly shaped larvae are found in freshwater, and they and other bugs are often good indicators of water quality.

16th Place: Snail eggs (200x)



Courtesy Nikon Small World Photo Micrography Competition: Photographed by Massimo Brizzi

These symmetric ovals are actually the eggs of a pond snail. Snails deposits their eggs in large jelly-like clumps into the water.
This picture shows a close-up of two of these eggs, with embryos developing inside them.

19th Place: Snowflake (40x)

A photograph captures this rare type of snowflake. It only lasted for 2 hours out of three days of snowfall in Beijing, but at least the image endures.
