Since 2011, the Nikon Small World in Motion competition has blended the science of microscopy and the art of photography to show how dynamic the world is when we take a closer look. The first-place winner for 2022 is Eduardo Zattara from Argentina’s National Scientific and Technical Research Council. Using a combination of bright field and confocal microscopy along with fluorescent markers, Zattara was able to capture how lateral line cells (green) and melanocytes (orange) travel within a zebrafish embryo.
