What is this mystery microscopic image above?

Send us your best guess for your chance to WIN a cool prize pack from Mad About Science, including a Biology Madness science kit, a Phonoscope that turns a phone or tablet into a microscope, and a very cuddly Helicobacter Pylori plush toy (just to remind you of Professor Barry and Professor Robin – keep reading).

To be in the running, here’s what you have to do… Look carefully at the above picture (it is a magnified image of something being viewed under a microscope). Write down what you think is being viewed under the microscope, and draw or paint your best unmagnified version of it.
