US Air Force photo showing a close-up of the foot of a premature baby in an intensive care unit. The red light shining on the baby's tiny foot is the glow from a monitor keeping tabs on the newborn's vital signs. The image was captured in December 2009 at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. Photo by Staff Sergeant Bennie J Davis III.
