Very cool photos of an ovarian follicle, structures found inside ovaries that each contain a single oocyte, or egg, expelling said egg. They've never had such clear photos, they say. And the egg is beautiful, like a drop of golden honey.
They were taken by Professor Jacques Donnez of the Catholic University in Louvain, Belgium. He was about to peform a partiel hysterectomy on a 45-year-old woman when he noticed the follicle—so he stopped and snapped come photos. Too cool.
Found at The Sideshow.
