A beautiful timelapse of various organic motives drying out using high-resolution cameras with macro-lenses or the microscope in a film by Christian Stangl. “Life needs water. But this fluid tends to evaporate over time into a gaseous state. Drying out is a chemical process that takes hours, days, or even weeks. Without enough water, the organism’s metabolism is stopping.” We’ve shared some still images from the video here but the full gallery is also available at Flickr.
