Brightness of life
This is a pseudo color photograph of STEM of negative dyed bacteria. When some little of water from a pond is observed with electron microscope, the cell body emitting a lot of flagella and minute fibers was seen. The bacteria, which seem still alive and going to begin moving at the moment, give me shock to off the loupe. I realized the power of electron microscope that challenges the micro world and a mystery of life.
