This photomicrograph shows a sample of Tilia sp. (Linden), a botanical specimen with unique, circular structures. The microscope used to make the image was outfitted with darkfield condenser because it best delineated the internal structures that would otherwise be transparent in traditional brightfield illumination microscopy. Many individual images were captured and have been stitched together to make up this composite photograph, which exhibits high structural detail and resolution.
