Looking through the microscope today.



Looking at a slide of a mammal's ovary under the microscope. Per Wikipedia the white blobs with a dot in the middle are called ovarian follicles. Women begin puberty with about 400,000 follicles, each with the potential to release an egg cell (ovum) at ovulation.
