To bring this hidden beauty to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg uses microscopes, time lapse, and high-speed cameras to examine four kinds of scales: the very big, small, fast and slow. But his images are more than just “wow”-factor; they’re meant to inspire people to protect the natural world. Check out a gallery of his work at on.ted.com/hummingbird
