Default Microscope Pix of Hoppy Goodness

These are some pics taken with an optical stereo microscope of a part of a Fuggles cone from my garden... looks sorta like a Hoppy Butterfly.. lol

You can make out the lupilin glands at the base of the leafs surrounded by little, yellow globules of the 'good stuff'

7x magnification...
