    STEVE GSCHMEISSNER/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY Blood clot. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of red blood cells (erythrocytes, red) clumped together with fibrin (brown) to form a blood clot. Magnification: x5000.

    Plant cells . . . the intricacies of how things have been made baffles me. God's nature is so beautiful.

    SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) image of a white blood cell, platelet and red blood cell. White blood cells or leucocytes (far right) fight infection by producing antibodies or devouring invading bacteria. Red blood cells or erythrocytes (far left) carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Platelets (middle) are cell fragments that play a role in the ability of blood to clot.

    An image of capillary, just wide enough for one red blood cell (erythrocyte) to squeeze through.

    Nerve cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of nerve cells, known as neurones. Nerve cells occur in the brain, spinal cord, and in ganglia. Each nerve cell has a large cell body (brown) with several long processes extending from it. The processes usually consist of one thicker axon and several thinner branched dendrites. The dendrites collect information in the form of nerve impulses from other nerve cells and pass it to the cell body.
