From pollen grains to a rose pistil to magnolia wood, these incredible close-up photos, taken from under an electron microscope, reveal the beauty of plants as never before!
In images that are as exquisite as any art, this stunning collection unearths some of the most unique photographs of flowers, trees, grasses, and other plants ever created, all made possible by the electron microscope. It not only allows us to appreciate the beauty of seeds, petals, algae, leaves, and fruiting bodies, but also to understand the science behind the picture. Whether it's the work of a lavender leaf oil gland, the inside of a pine pollen, flower stamen sculptures deep inside a tree bark, or the wonderful patterns of lichen, each image is eye opening—and includes the scale of the photography as well as the scientific details in layman's terms.
