Janelia neurobiologist Igor Siwanowicz wins first prize in the 2013 Olympus BioScape Digital Imaging Competition with a photo that shows the gaping trap of an aquatic carnivorous plant, humped bladderwort about to consume microinvertebrates.

Siwanowicz has been working with lab head Anthony Leonardo’s group since 2011, where he studies dragonfly prey-capture behavior. He applies his award-winning imaging techniques to his lab work to analyze the structure of the dragonfly’s neck and wing joints.
