    You might be interested to know that the 2008 winners of the Olympus BioScapes microscope photography competition were just announced yesterday. Once again, the intersection of science and art is awe-inspiring. A photo of a tiny wasp took first prize. Check them all out at

    Can anyone tell me where I can get the free poster referred to above? More generally, are the images available as high resolution downloads that I could get blown up for my wall? Thx
