Capturing the microscopic details of  Lilliputian objects, microphotographers are able to engage in a world that is hidden from the naked eye.  Discover Magazine showcases 20 of these artists of the minute, finalists of a recent contest held by the camera company Nikon. Some of the highlights include a spindly closeup of a Zebrafish embryo, red algae cells that look like Chinese fans, and bulging, luminescent frog embryos.

Academics, researchers, and professional photographers were all honored in the contest.
