Caption: Zoom in to the leaf of a stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), showing its stinging trichomes as well as shorter leaf hairs. The stinging nettle is a common plant in much of the northern hemisphere, and is well known for its painful sting. The stings are due to the sharp trichomes, which inject a mixture of chemicals, including histamine, into the skin when touched. Filmed in Denmark.
