Nat Geo’s Best Micro-Photos of 2010
I always like to browse websites like National Geographic and check their “photo of the day” sections, and it seems I have found an amazing album on their website. They have collected their favorite micro-photos of 2010 and placed them in a small slideshow. These images are simply mesmerizing. My favorite one is shown below

“Rub-a-dub-dub, 16 bubbles on a microscope slide: These psychedelic orbs are tiny circles of soap film, photographed with simple lighting and 150-power magnification.
Many microphotography pictures use heavy-duty polarization or fluorescence to achieve a unique look, but Gerd Guenther, of Düsseldorf, Germany, captured this picture with “bright field” lighting: the straightforward, light-from-beneath method familiar from high school microscopes.”
