Oral Contraceptive (Estrogen/Progestin)
A beauty of the body and a burden to bear. Finding Balance is a shot of crystallized estrogen and progestin from an oral contraceptive pill. This image is the epitome of perfect timing. An eyelash happened to fall within the field of view on the microscope at the perfect time between heating and cooling the crystals. It was only within view for a few seconds to get the shot before melting again.
