Flowers on the lake
This is the pseudo color picture of dark field STEM image of a cell body of the protozoan parasites on the mouse duodenum and its line hair section by a scanning transmission electron microscope. Distribution of 9+2 structure of microtubule of line hair and ribosome cytoplasm granules seems to be six aquatic plants blooming in a flower garden and an inlet opening in a quiet shore. Such beautiful micro world structure reminds of a mystery of life.
