The California Academy of Science introduces us to the beauty of microscopic algae. These arranged diatoms will change your opinion on how beautiful algae can be. Diatoms are a group of algae that is found in oceans, freshwater, soil and other moist environments. These unicellular beings are some of the world's smallest organisms. They also are very diverse, they come in 10,000 different species.

Microscopic algae, aside from its biological matter makes for beautiful works of art. Hobbyists at the CAS organized these photographs of diatoms into kaleidoscopic arrangements. These photos demonstrate how the microscopic algae is nearly symmetrical. The diatoms typically measure about 100 to 100 micrometers wide individually. The microscopic algae could measure as small at the head of a nail. Stats for Kaleidoscopically Arranged Algae Photos Trending: This Year & Mild
