I have never yet encountered a flower that can be magnified by clicking on it.

Clearly, you haven't eaten enough crushed Morning Glory seeds.

These are really great pieces.

The prints are actually pretty inexpensive, even framed. I am tempted.

I used to have a wall poster with an xray of a flower, just something that was in the art & framing section of a local crafts store. Mine was in black and white, and I have to say that I think I prefer an uncolored image.

Just visited the bizarre and endlessly fascinating Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City, CA a few weeks ago where they had an exhibit similar to this, but created in 3D using stereoradiography.
