20 breathtaking images that show science in motion

The Wellcome Image Awards are a pretty big deal, celebrating the planet's best science image making, which are both fascinating to look at and help to explain complex scientific concepts.

From a super-detailed look at the scales on a Madagascan moth to the furred-up arteries of a stroke patient, it's safe to say these shots are a world away from your Instagram feed.

You can also take a closer look at the award-winning images at a load of exhibitions taking place across the UK from 16 March, including the Science Museum in London - as well as in the US, Russia and South Africa.
