Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition Winners

Holy shit I love these things. Cannon hosts one too. First place was cool, but not very compelling. Here's the website. Below are a few of my favorites. 

This is amazing. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, indeed. You're looking at the process of cell division. "HeLa cells", derived from a cervical cancer cell, were the first immortal cell line. I love to see how the new cells (they're called "daughter cells" - beautifully ironic) seem to be tearing apart. You can almost see the agony in this picture, which really communicates the ethical grey area.
