Bacterial close-ups

When I was doing my master's research on the ecology of speciation in Bacillus subtilis - B. licheniformis, we had an undergrad working in the lab who took some of my plates and ran them through an electron microscope to see what the bacterial colonies looked like.  Here is one of the photos he took.



I was reminded of this photo from this National Geographic piece, showing lots of different bacterial species through an eletron microscope.  Check it out.
