Micrograph Contest

A micrograph is a photograph taken through a microscope to show a magnified image of an item. To produce a micrograph, a camera may be affixed to a microscope either in place of the eyepiece or a specialist microscope may be used which has a camera and eyepiece arrangement.

Here are the prize winners of the 49th International Micrograph Conference. I especially like the micrograph pictured above, winner of the Most Bizarre Award. The title is Chisai Benjo, Japanese for 'small toilet.'
