These Microscopic Things Elude Our Eyes Every Day

We take much of what we can see for granted, but if your eyes had the observational power of a microscope, you’d probably look at the world very differently.

This captivating compilation video showcases some of the most exciting video clips captured and submitted by photography professionals during Nikon’s Small World Motion Photomicrography Competition.

Among some of the things we see here are microscopic creatures, the mechanics inside of a small watch, the cells found within a squid’s skin, and the beautiful crystallization process of soy sauce as it dries.

When it comes to the microscopic world, these incredible video clips hardly scratch the surface. But they are indeed fascinating, and researchers will surely analyze them in case they provide any potential science leads.
