"Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood clean from my hand?"
This micro-gigapan was shot at a magnification of nearly 2000x. The image is of a blood smear on a piece of single crystal silicon. While the specimen was relatively flat, there is still enough variation in height to make some regions out of focus due to the severely limited depth of field at this magnification. Clearly some focus stacking is in order.
