Eye of a honey bee

Date:2 November 2015 Tags:, , ,

This year’s winner of the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition, Ralph Grimm, captured the eye of a honey bee covered in dandelion pollen grains. Magnified at 120x, the images was captured and compiled using a reflected light technique that uses incremental focus to avoid peripheral blurring during the compilation process.
