(And once again, I found this via PZ Myers.)

Although it looks like a flower , this is an image of a limpet embryo, stained to show 4 different proteins and viewed (& photographed) using a confocal microscope. There are several other stunning images at the Node, which is an on-line community site for developmental biologists – and you can vote on which one should grace the next cover of the journal Development.
