Leg anatomy. Computer artwork of a rear view of a human leg, showing the muscles and tendons (brown and white), bones and ligaments (white), arteries and veins (red and blue), nerves (yellow), and lymph vessels (green). The leg articulates with the pelvis at the hip joint. The upper leg (thigh) articulates with the lower leg at the knee, and the lower leg articulates with the foot at the ankle. The main bones are the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia and fibula of the lower leg. The arteries and veins arise from large blood vessels in the groin. The nerves arise from the spinal cord, including the large sciatic nerve (top).
