It's a microbial world

Beautiful images from “Exploring the Invisible”.  Dr Simon Park is a scientist/artist that uses the living world to make art.  These images are a collaboration with water color artist Sarah Roberts, and show what happens when you mix motile (swarming) bacteria with watercolor paints - the bacteria themselves have created this amazing art!  Top : Serratia marcascens, bottom: Proteus mirabilis
