Daffy Duck (Darkfield)

Daffy Duck

As we see it, the engineers that designed this wireframe version of Daffy Duck must have had a very interesting sense of humor. We found it deeply embedded within the circuitry of a RISC microprocessor, about 1500 microns away from a similar-style rendition of Waldo. Daffy is about 50 microns in size, making it necessary to use a high-power (40X to 60X) microscope objective to photograph the wireframe character.
