This is a small SEM Nanogigapan of a snail that we pulled off tidal rocks at Mendocino's Big River beach. This snail is magnified 300x and the image is composed of 64 pictures.

This Gigapan is part of the NanoGigaPan project. Which is working to take big pictures of very small things.

    Cool! Its so holey! Love seeing things in such detail which otherwise are totally beyond my reach. It'd be great to see the smooth inside surface of a clamshell too.
