Nikon's Small World
Nikon has announced the winners of its annual Small World in Motion competition. The photomicrography contest first introduced a video category in 2011, which includes digital time-lapse footage taken through a microscope. They've shared some of the finalist and honorable mention videos from this year's competition with us. First place went to Wim van Egmond of the Micropolitan Museum in the Netherlands for his video of a ciliate predator devouring its prey. Enjoy a trip into the microscopic world with this incredible footage, and be sure to check out highlights from last year’s competition.
