I ran across this just and just had to share these pictures with you. Really incredible enough to be able to photograph these cells but to turn something ike that into a piece of art, it just goes to show you the creative muse can strike at any time.

Having almost Tibetan-like respect for life I just hope nothing was harmed in the making of these pictures. Very cool though and most psychedelic.

Very pretty and all.
I just hope we don't meet their macro-cousins out in space.

Awesome pictures but...

Creative? hmmm im not sure, this was being done for a while now.. but mainly used to stain cells and other microscopic things, i could have done this if i wanted during my bachelorsto(anyone can with at least a BSc and some lab skills), but i would not get any credit in my experiment for "playing around".

To me this is the same as colouring ants green and call it awesome. i guess i would enjoy them more if i didn't know of it already.
