This one and your sunflower X-section are nice images. However, they would be more interesting if there was some interpretation of the various morphological parts. I guess what I am saying is that "art" is good but I would prefer "science"; why not both ?

” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”

Very cool! I remember learning all the parts as an undergrad in the Invertebrate Zoology lab. Loved that stuff. I remember the dorsal blood vessel, ventral blood vessel, ventral nerve cord... that's about it!
