All of them were fluorescence images this year.

My photomicrograph captured with the Nikon Z6 was the winning image of Asia Pacific.

"Spores bursting out of fern sori capsules".


Below are the other 2 submissions, moss leaf and the diatom "Entogoniopsis morlandii".

Superb. Well done.

I take it the fluorescence is induced by UV? Would be nice if you wish to share some details on this approach.

Not a researcher anymore, might go back one day.

Yep, autofluorescence induced with the use of a wideband UV-DAPI filter cube.  Photographed with a microscope.

Thanks for all the kind comments!
