Take an extraordinarily close-up look at nature through the Nikon's Small World 2016 Photomicrography Competition's 20 winning photographs, currently on exhibit at the Delaware Museum of Natural History as part of a national tour. The photographs' microscopic perspective displays scientific images-including a butterfly's proboscis and actual human brain cells-in an artistic way.
The winning photograph is of a four-day old zebrafish embryo, taken by Oscar Ruiz, Ph.D., a research scientist at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Ruiz studies zebrafish to see the effects of genetic mutations that lead to facial abnormalities.
There were more than 2,000 entries by scientists, photographers and hobbyists. The full winner gallery can be viewed on www.nikonsmallworld.com. Information about entering this year's contest is also available.

Monday - Saturday 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM.; Sunday 12:00 PM - 4:30 PM
