nanoflowers seeded from nano-sized particles of metals that grow, or self assemble, in a natural process. Eye surgeons would implant these fractal devices within the eyes of blind patients, providing interface circuitry that would collect light captured by the retina and guide it with almost 100 percent efficiency to neurons for relay to the optic nerve to process vision. microscopic-beauty

See clams like these in Tahiti! However, I never saw them so close together.

Licmophora flabellata. It is a spectacular fan-shaped colony of diatoms.

Close up of chalk. Why is it under critters? Chalk is actually composed of tiny white spheres that are the aggregation of the ancient skeletons of phytoplankton algae. Those skeletons are compacted together by water and time to create the substance we know from elementary school, but the spheres are clearly visible under a high-powered microscope.
