No Jellybeans ... but ...  E. coli [9400x magnification]

"Bacteria replicate close to the physical limit of efficiency" E. coli bacteria live almost at the limit of thermodynamic efficiency.

Pollen from a forget-me-not. This flower has one of the smallest known grains of pollen; just five one-thousandths of a millimetre in diameter. A Swiss scientists named Martin Oeggerli, who uses the name Micronaut for his art, has captured these Scanning Electron Microscope images of pollen grains.

A colorized transmission electron micrograph picture of the Ebola virus...this is my favorite virus.

Ebola virus causes a deadly disease that we still have no vaccine or treatment for. There is currently an outbreak of Ebola occurring in Guinea in Wester

Shigella dysenteriae bacteria.  So beautiful.  Not the symptoms, but Shigella is just so interesting in its mechanisms.  You just have to have respect for bacterial evolution.

Coloured SEM of Shigella dysenteriae bacteria, the cause of dysentery in humans. Until the introduction of sulphonamide drugs in the it was a worldwide killer disease. It still affects the young, elderly, and malnourished.

Staphylococcus bacteria. Most common of the 1 trillion bacteria that live on our skin. Only a few strains of this bacteria are harmful and cause staph infections or toxic shock syndrome.  Most are harmless.
