From Princeton's Art of Science 2009, first place goes to.... ta-DAHHH! A Microphotograph of Squid Embryos!! The picture was taken by Celeste Nelson (faculty), Department of Chemical Engineering:
"My tissue morphodynamics laboratory studies the dynamic processes that control tissue development. This image of squid (Loligo pealeii) embryos was taken using bright field microscopy." Quote from contest website, see link below.

No! I wish... According to the website,
"Celeste Nelson (faculty)

My photos tend to be of the terrestrial variety...

Cute little frogs. I have always wanted a sloth (or at least thought they would be an interesting pet IF they could be kept as one) but have never seen one that looked as playful as your zoo photo.

Thanks! I have a Canon Powershot G9. I give it all the credit.

It still takes a person to use any camera and usually that person can make a great difference..... very nice picture

As I mentioned before, it's not only the camera. If you know how to use a camera manually it makes alot of difference, personally I like Canon and have been looking at the new G11 to replace my A75 when it dies. There are lot of things to consider, what do want from the camera and what are you going to do with the photos, size, weight and frequency of use and how much you are willing to spend.
