Winning Photos Of The 2018: The Hidden Beauty Of A Microscopic World

If we combine nature, microscope and photography together, the result will be amazing, and these photos of The 2018 Nikon Small World Contest Reveal prove it!

For the 44th year, Nikon celebrates the invisible world by organizing Small World Photomicrography Competition. As imaging and microscope technologies evolve, scientists, professional photographers continue to push the boundaries of micrograph. This year over 2500 scientists and artist from 89 countries submitted their work.

After being evaluated on originality, informational content, technical proficiency, and visual impact, Yousef Al Habshi from Abu Dhabi was declared the winner. His incredible image of an Asian Red Palm weevil’s eye is a close up look at the insect’s striking anatomy.
