Here are the full results:

– SEM of butterfly scale: 93 votes

Drosophila embryos: 37 votes

Many congratulations to Mary Colasanto (University of Utah, USA) and Emily Mis (Yale University, USA) who took this image at the 2013 course. It shows a living embryo of the little skate (Leucoraja erinacea), sitting atop its yolk at approximately ten weeks of development.  Imaged on a Zeiss Discovery.V20. This image will feature in the cover of a coming issue of Development.

The other great images in this round were taken by Lara Linden (butterfly scale), Wiebke Wessels (Drosophila embryos), and Emily Mis and Misty Riddle (swallowtail wing).
