View the winning images of the 2015 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition. First place was awarded to Australian Ralph Grimm for his close-up image of a bee eye covered in dandelion pollen grains. Grimm is a high school teacher, self-taught photomicrographer and former beekeeper. While bee colonies continue to dwindle worldwide, Grimm hopes his image can serve as a voice for these insects that play such a critical function in pollinating the world’s crops. This year’s competition received over 2,000 entries from more than 83 countries.
