Image of the Week: Protists!

Our image this week is by photographer and microbiologist, Kevin J. Carpenter. The image below, taken through a scanning electron microscope, features an “anterior view of the protist Foaina sp.” For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dr. Carpenter’s work is on display at the Exploratorium  Museum (basically the coolest science museum around). A second gallery is also opening in late September at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum in Vancouver, Canada. Check out his website for more information and more great images.
