Many of us who have taken Biology in high school have experienced using a microscope and it all appears to be a set of obscure minute objects that don’t make sense unlike the bright colored diagrams from out textbooks. But, what we don’t know is that to see anything in a beautiful way, one needs to know how to set the lens and lighting in the right manner. I am not talking about focusing them, as any person can do that. What I mean is that to observe the beauty of something, one must know the lighting, angles, colors and definition required to capture them. It sounds like a job for a photographer and that too who knows about microscopy.

Apparently, microscopic photography isn’t an obscure field as there are many well-trained professionals around the world who do it for a living. An annual event named Nikon Small World Competition brings together some of the finest work from this small world and displays it on their website. It is still going on and winners will be announced by 14th of this month. Seeing the pictures below, the judges will have a tough choice to announce the best photographer at this event of covering toadstools, bees and other creepy crawlers.

Here are some amazing pictures from the finalists:
