"Incredibly beautiful micrograph of blood clotting"



"This awesome picture is a coloured scanning electron micrograph of human red blood cells (erythrocytes, red) and platelets (thrombocyte, white) forming a blood clot. Clots are formed in response to cardiovascular disease or injuries to blood vessels. Platelets secrete chemicals that promote the accumulation of fibrin (not seen) and other blood components required for clot formation."
