science in action

They may not be award-winning, digitally retouched masterpieces, but they're real photos of real science in action, sent by a loyal reader who will remain anonymous unless he chooses to break the silence.

Up first: Demodex follicularum, a mite that inhabits the sebaceous glands on your face. (Normal light microscopy.)

Second: A crawfish nerve. (Confocal microscopy.)
