Nikon has revealed the 2018 winners of the forty-fourth annual Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition. 

First place was awarded to Emirati photographer Yousef Al Habshi, who captured part of the compound eyes and surrounding greenish scales of an Asian Red Palm weevil.  

According to Al Habshi, 'the main challenge was to show the black body against the black background without overexposing the skin and scales.'

The photos are stunning. They're like works of art. All except for the seed weevil. That is the stuff of nightmares!

One or two are beautiful, but mostly I just found them creepy. All are interesting.
