Fishing Kingfisher

Kingfishers are small, brightly colored birds classified within the order Coraciiformes , which is a misnomer because it means “raven-like.” There are over 90 different species of kingfishers located across the planet and they share similar physical characteristics: large heads, long, sharp, pointed beaks, and short legs. While famous for hunting fish, kingfishers actually consume a wide range of prey including insects, amphibians, crustaceans, molluscs, and spiders.

This slow-motion shot depicts a kingfisher performing its signature dive into water in search of small fish. Although unsuccessful, the bird emerges from the water with a twisting motion in order to return to flight.

Cleavage of DNA by CRISPR-Cas9

Scientists have used atomic force microscopy to visualize the real-time dynamics of CRISPR-Cas9 as it binds and cleaves a strand of DNA. The high speed imaging technique captures the Cas9 enzyme as it searches for, binds to, and cuts a matching DNA sequence. CRISPR has received extensive media coverage over the past few years because of its ability to easily edit genetic material.
