Hibiscus Pollen under the Microscope

This image of hibiscus pollen was captured by Harald K. Andersen in Steinberg, Norway. Andersen captured the image with a biological microscope at 150x magnification using darkfield microscopy. He then took a stack of 155 TIFF images and compiled them using image stacking software to obtain the image below.
