How does the root tip grow and how do the fingertips sweat?
Here comes the microphotography of "Little World" in the new year.

recently, Nikon's "Little World" microphotography competition announced the award-winning works of this year's dynamic group. Today, we will select some of the finalists to enjoy

all the original videos and introductions can be seen here:

this year's champion awarded a short video recording plant root tip growth under a confocal microscope. We can clearly observe how the root tips of Arabidopsis thaliana elongate after fluorescence labeling, and the corresponding actual time is about 17 hours.

the second place shows how our fingers are enlarged. Yes, there are sweat glands on fingerprints, and traces of secretions they leave can also be detected. I even saw a paper saying that when the fingerprint is incomplete, the distribution characteristics of these sweat gland openings can also be used as an auxiliary basis for fingerprint identification to help solve the case.

here are a few of my choices.

I don't know exactly what equipment is being photographed here. I have photographed iPad with water droplets before, and it is as follows:

Cluster rotifer (Floscularia)
