Image Stacking
20X (Objective Lens Magnification)

The 12th place image is that of a human hair. Or to be more specific, a single strand of Mr. Robert Vierhaler’s (the image creator) daughter’s hair. Mr. Vierhaler works for a steel company and does macro and micro photography as a hobby. This image was created using a modified standard microscope fitted with a bellows attachment and a Nema stepper motor in order to capture numerous images for stacking.
