I’m doing my best to get some images up.  Please be patient while I struggle with file compatabilities etc.

The span of the hook is about 200 microns.  This image is composed of a stack of .tif images that slice through the hook.  It is the cellulose in the plant cells hat is fluorescing.  Look closely at the shoulder of the rotating hook and you can see the “stepped” outline where the voxels of one plane meet the voxels of the next image section/plane.
