Electron microscopic photos of common things

A whole new world out there.

Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Photos… Awesome!


All these pictures are from the book ‘ Microcosmos,’ created by Brandon Brill from London.  This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, human body parts and household items.  These are the most amazing images of what is too small to see with the naked eye.
