Emelie is a Winner!

Congratulations Emelie on her second place in The Best Photo in Vision Research and Ophthalmology competition. The competition was organized by the European Vision Institute and Heidelberg Engineering was the sponsor. 

Inside the compound eye of a fiddler crab: This electron micrograph shows a cross-section through one of the many thousand elongated ommatidia (eye units). Seven retinula cells contribute microvillus projections to a central photosensitive rhabdom at perpendicular angles. This allows the crab to discriminate between horizontally and vertically polarized light.
