Isn’t this just the best picture ever? It is an “Image of distinction” in the 2013 Nikon Small World Photomicrography competition, taken by Dr. Andrea Schmidt-Rhaesa, Corinna Schulze and Ricardo Neves (Universität Hamburg). It shows a marine tardigrade who seems to be a little short in the one leg department. Darn that Skorp! That reminds me; I must still do my Duolingo German lesson today…
Oh, and I have to credit Zemanta for the Ooooooh, Mustafa shiver.
