Nature Under the Microscope: A Hidden Beauty

The way we see and perceive nature has changed considerably over the course of man’s time on Earth. What began as an eye-level view of our surroundings soon grew into a bird’s eye view of them, with the use of hot air balloons, planes, and drones affording everyone a more total look of the world’s many wonders.

And further still, advancements in imaging technology have seen the birth of macroscopic cameras and microscopes. Allowing us to explore far beyond what our eyes can perceive, microscopes in particular have proven instrumental in revealing the hidden beauty of nature. Plump with unimaginable colors, structures, and shapes, the microscopic world is a gentle reminder to consider the detail that lies beyond that which the eye can perceive.
