Pollen Grain

Micro World Wallpaper

This is one of our pictures of a single pollen grain. It was taken using a scanning-laser confocal microscope. These microscopes take many images of a sample at different depths. Each image, or as we call them slice, is saved and later the entire group of images are put back together using a computer.
