Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of red blood cells (erythrocytes) from a Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula). These cells contain haemoglobin, a pigment that allows them to carry oxygen around the body. Non-mammalian red blood cells (such as these) are oval (discoid) in shape and contain a cell nucleus. In comparison, human red blood cells are disc-shaped and do not have a cell nucleus. Magnification 1960x and the image is 80um wide.
