Caption: Neutrophil engulfing fungus. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a neutrophil white blood cell (blue) engulfing and destroying a Candida albicans (thrush) fungal hypha (beige). This process is called phagocytosis. Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell and are part of the body's immune system.
