Fernan Federici – Microscopic Photographs of Plants
These surreal images are microscopic photographs of various plants, taken by Dr. Fernan Federici. He is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge working in the area of Synthetic Biology. He started his career studying two years of Engineering at the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo (Mendoza, Argentina) and then moved to Chile to obtain an undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology. Later he moved to England to do a PhD in Biological Sciences at Cambridge. Each of Federici’s photographs depicts the cellular life of a different form of flora, from rainforest specimen to coniferous forest inhabitants. The plants’ bright colors, hollow-looking cells and overall intensity make for some absolutely stunning photographs that are both visually arresting and thought-provoking. The vibrant and detailed photographs show just how intricate and beautiful nature really is.

Two ingrown hairs (I think it’s two) on my leg are shaped like a treble clef so I took a picture of it. Fuckin’ uncanny.
Kinda wanna tag this for people who would be bothered by this but have no idea what to put :/
…This is incredible, right? Maybe my standards are a little low….
Pseudofolliculitis results from body hairs that become ingrown generally due to shaving, waxing, or plucking. It is particularly a problem among individuals with very curly or coarse hair. The ingrown hairs result in inflamed bumps and/or pustules. Any areas of the skin that are shaved can develop pseudofolliculitis such as the face, neck, legs, or scalp.
Also, pseudofolliculitis can become infected with staph, as in the 2nd and 3rd pictures above (ﾉ´ワ`)ﾉ✿☆✿☆✿~

Makes me scared to submit a pic
