Winning Photos Bring World of the Itsy-Bitsy to Life

A teensy bat embryo covering its eyes with wings, an ant carrying her larva and wobbly-looking newborn spiderlings are just a few of the winners of a photography contest honoring the little things in life — including babies, it seems.

The winners of the 2012 Nikon International Small World photography contest were announced today (Oct. 23), with a brightly colored image of the blood-brain barrier in a live zebrafish embryo awarded 1st place. The second-place winner in the small-world contest was a creepy-cute photograph of newborn lynx spiderlings by Walter Piorkowski.
Third place went to a wispy color-coded photo showing components of human bone cancer taken by Dylan Burnette of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.
