Nano Nature

Earlier this week, I blogged about the National Geographic’s Top 10 pics of 2008.

I’ve found some more really cool images from nature.

They’re taken by a scanning electron microscope and included in a book titled “Nano Nature: Nature’s Spectacular Hidden World”  by Richard Jones.

The pic above is from the book and shows off the coiled up tongue of a hummingbird hawkmoth.

That groovy pic is a close-up of a fruit fly eye.

The Daily Mail has more of these scans.
