The Coopers Cooperate!

Sara and John Cooper have been very busy creating beautiful images of the seeds in the collection of the Dixon National Tallgrass Prairie Seed Bank.  Every week sees another set of beautiful images produced by this imaging duo.  They painstakingly "plate-out" 1-5 seeds under a high-powered dissecting microscope, arrange them artistically and then snap some truly beautiful pictures.  These images, while beautiful, also serve to document the identity of each species in the collection.  Many of these seeds have never been been photographed before.
