Phytochemical microscopy

If you decide to hang out indoors this week, take a look at this Florida State University gallery of phytochemical micrographs– micrographs are photographs taken through microscopes; phytochemicals are chemicals produced by plants.

I love this picture, it looks like some wonderful textile art.
