Plants and Insects Magnified Thousands of Times

Watch more with these video collections:

German photographer Stefan Diller has made micro worlds into immense and detailed landscapes to fly over. After three years of work, he’s refined a mix of scanning electron microscope (SEM) technology with “micro-movie camera”Β software. Thousands of photos — 1500 frames for one minute of footage — are takenΒ at different positions around the specimen.Β These images are then animated together into a video process called Nanoflight, as shown in this rather jaw-dropping video.

And even the still photographs mesmerize. Be sure to check out Diller’s site for SEM images of animals, plants, and materials.

What would you photograph with aΒ scanning electron microscope?Β And what do you imagine it would look like?
