GigaPan by Dennis vanEngelsdorp and Michael Andree
Freshly removed from a honeybee colony, this wooden frame full of honeycomb reveals diseased bee larvae. The 140 megapixel panorama was taken in June 2009 at a quarantined apiary in Newport, Pennsylvania used to study bee disease. It is made up of 25 individual photographs stitched together.
