Over the past thirty years, Dennis Kunkel has worked in the field of microscopy, and along the way, he has developed a number of exhibits, publications, and other such materials on the subject. For those looking for such material online, this site provides both a fine image bank for general use and general information about the art and science of this interesting field of scientific endeavor. The first stop for most visitors should be the education image library area of the site. Here they can search the database of micrographs in its entirety, or browse the contents by category, which includes such areas as crystals, insects, or protozoa. One rather fun feature on the site is the “Most Wanted Bugs” section, which contains twelve “bug mugs” and “bug body” shots taken through the process of photomicrography. The site is rounded out by the “Zoom In” area, which allows users the opportunity to zoom in on a black ant, a fruit fly, or a mosquito.
