This is a micro gigapan of a small spot of blood, which looks a little like our earth. The images were collected at ~2000x magnification.

This Gigapan is part of the NanoGigaPan project. Which is working to take large pictures of very small things.

    Nice. Seeing plenty of red cells, but not found a white one yet. The race is on to be the first to snapshot one.
