NASA has published some of the most recent images of Mercury returned by the Messenger probe yesterday.

Some of the pictures were taken when the probe was only at 200KMs from the surface of the planet. The probe is set to enter Mercury’s orbit in March 2011.

You can see more of the images taken by the probe on NASA’s web site.
