Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an adipocyte (fat cell, blue). Surrounding the adipocyte are white blood cells (red). Such a lovely color.

Fertilization. Colored scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a sperm (blue) attempting to penetrate a human egg (orange).

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a sperm (blue) attempting to penetrate a human egg (orange). Actually, it takes a great number to weaken the outside of the egg enough for one to fertilize it.

Bdelloidea are microscopic aquatic animals that are related to roundworms

Bdelloidea are microscopic aquatic animals that are related to roundworms, found in freshwater and moist soil. Interestingly, a male has never been observed within the species; females reproduce exclusively by parthenogenesis (without fertilization).

Inner ear hair cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of sensory hair cells in the cochlea of the inner ear. The crescent-shaped arrangements of hairs across top are the stereocilia. Each crescent lies atop a single cell. Magnification: x1000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
