Velcro 50X Magnif
Looks organic, right? Like something you'd see in a nook on a coral reef? It's actually velcro.

Oliver Meckes and Nicole Ottawa are microphotographers who founded Eye of Science in 1994. Capturing everything from insects to velcro, their images help scientists (and the rest of us) make sense of the things too small to see with the naked eye. It's all done with Transmission-Electron Microscopy and Macintosh computers.
