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. 2-2-11


Eyelash hairs growing from the surface of human skin


Bacteria on the surface of a human tongue


Head louse clinging to a human hair


Clutch of butterfly eggs on a raspberry plant

Source: www.rense.com...

PLEASE go to the main article to see the rest. I am even thinking of getting the whole book. Something tells me this person has one hell of a good time doing this work.

I love these. Look at the Head Louse fella. Holding on for dear life. A whole new world at that level.

I can't wait to hear what you have to say about some of them and/or what is your favorites.

Enjoy.

Beautiful pictures, we really are quite big when you look at it like that.

Wow. Just wow! I had a book with a similar name back in my college days. And I thought wow back then (25 years ago), but these photos are stunning.

Wow! Those are great pics. I must say, I was a little skeptical about not being disappointed before clicking this thread, but I will definitely agree with you on this one. I was not disappointed at all.
Good thread.

Now to choose a couple favorites.
I like the mosquito head, even though it reminds me of Fraggle Rock.
The cigarette paper is definitely interesting. Is that particles of charcoal and other 'ignitors'? (thats probably not the correct term)
Favorite would probably have to be the head louse. Tough little creatures.

Whaaa? Skeptical? lol Don't worry my friend. I won't disappoint you-not my threads! (Feel free to take a look at my threads at my profile to see for yourself). I see that you are a recently joined ATS member. Welcome.

Put that skeptical thinking in the closet.

Hmmm. I suppose even an ant can't go anywhere without his laptop.

Thanks for the images, OP

Of the ones posted on here, the bacteria on the tongue definitely gives one pause to think -- French kiss anyone?



Eeeeewwwwww!

On the Renses sight the head of the mosquito is astounding. I tried to figure it out before reading the caption but had no clue. I would love to have all of those extraordinarily detailed features explained as to their purpose and how they work!

Funny-lol. Glad you liked them.

I am awaiting the first avatar/mini-pic to emerge from one of the crafty ATSers.!!

kinda makes my skin crawl when you think about it. 1 cm of my skin in comparisin to a microbe is 1000 ft deep and a huge landscape kinda mind boggling

What really got to me was the eyelashes one. Look at the dead skin around.

We decaying before we are even dead-reminder makes me like make-up more.

edit on 3-2-2011 by GBP/JPY because: couldn't see the tongue for the bacteria

Don't worry, underneath that dead skin layer is a nice new fresh layer of skin


It's unbelievable how unrecognizable many things become and how strange they look on such submicroscopic levels. Especially that photo of the tongue. I can't tell the tongue tissue apart from all those microorganisms.

I'm actually starting a course in microbiology next week. These photo's got me even more excited.

Love the color and details, it's like a whole nother world down there in the microcosm.
Thanks for sharing and here's a couple other links to some more awesome shots:

Yes, I know... hehehe. But you have to admit that the pic makes you think of decaying skin. Someday there won't be fresh stuff underneath
(

Anyway. Life is for the living. Lucky you to be taking courses/school etc. "If I could do it all over again......"

I would take school/college a hell of a lot more seriously than I did and would have applied myself so much more.

Good luck with that and don't be afraid to pose some homework issues here to us so we can add our two cents

Look at all those receptors on the mosquito. No wonder they can find me wherever I go!
