The nervous system inside a zebrafish, a laser moving around inside a soap membrane and a polychaete worm digesting its food are among the amazing images to win accolades in the eighth annual international Nikon Small World in Motion Photomicrography Competition.
The video-comp is a spin-off from the long-running Nikon Small World photography project, which began in 1975 and rewards outstanding photography taken though the lens of a microscope.
This year’s competition was judged by a panel led by Joseph Fetcho, a neurobiologist from Cornell University in the US.
The full complement of this year’s prize winners can be seen at the Small World website.
