This Is What Peacock Feathers Look Like Under A Microscope


Canadian software engineer and photographer Waldo Nell shows us just how fabulous peacock feathers are – even at a microscopic level. Using an Olympus BX 53 microscope, Nell employed a technique called ‘photo stacking’. It involves combining hundreds of pictures taken at different focal points to get an image with a greater depth of field.
