Spectacular Close Up Photography of Tiny Creatures Captured with a Laser-Scanning Microscope


igor-1

Neurobiologist Igor Siwanowicz‘s latest photographic series takes us on a magical journey in extreme close up. His brilliantly colored images show the tree-like structures of moth antennas, the wild details of barnacle legs, and the otherworldly shapes of plant spores. The photos are made with a confocal laser-scanning microscope capable of “seeing” vast amounts of detail beyond what you might capture with a traditional lens-based microscope.
