Under a magnification of 1438X, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed some of the ultrastructural details seen on the surface of a crimson clover, Trifolium incarnatum flower petal. This clover was blooming during the month of March, on the grounds of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. Being that flower petals are actually modified leaves, the highly textured surface, composed of many cavitations and protuberances, are actually modification of the plant's leaf morphology.
