Great microscopic photographs

I saw really cool photomicrographs at the Wired magazine site. Take a look and see if you don't agree.

I'm not sure if I can legally post someone else's photo but I gave attribution to the photographer, Nikon and Wired so I don't think they'll object if more people look at the pictures.

I removed the photo after copyright clarification from Pam at Digging. Please click on the link to see the photos.

Ki, that photo will be copyrighted, so legally you cannot repost it without permission. This has happened to me more than a few times, and when I find out I always request that the blogger remove my photo from his or her site, even if the link could bring more traffic to my site. It's a matter of principle for me that people ask permission before (not while) using my work. However, I always appreciate a link if someone likes my photos.

I'm not telling you what to do here. Just giving you my perspective since you brought up the legality issue. That is a cool photo though.

Hi Pam,
Thanks for the clarification. I will remove the photo and just keep the link. Trying to get permission for a timely subject can be a little problematic though, i.e. trying to find the email of the photograper and the time it takes for the response. But I don't want to get in trouble so I will refrain from posting pictures copied and gleaned fron other sites in the future. Thanks again for the information.
