Nikon's Small World Photomicrography Competition

So they have this contest where really fancy cameras using microscopes and light techniques take images that none of us will ever get to see. The stuff is always fascinating, but I thought it would make a fun thread for here. Here's a few of the ones I liked the best, along with the link to the entire catalog of winners and honorable mentions.

First place winner: the hand of a Madagascar giant day gecko embryo, taken at 63x magnification. The hand is three millimeters long.
Image

Second place winner: breast tissue showing cells responsible for human milk production (alveoli) at 40x magnification.
Image

Third place winner: an adult mouse's intestine, showing its blood networks at 10x magnification.
Image

Slime mold shown at 10x magnification.
Image

The extinguished wick of a candle showing particles of carbon being released at 2.5x magnification.
Image

The face of an ant, shown at five times the magnification.
Image

A butterfly egg, seen at 10x magnification.
Image

All the entries!
