See the Microscopic Wonder of Herbs

National Geographic invites us to see the microscopic wonder of herbs in a series of surrealistic photos by Martin Oeggerli. His images reveal the intricacies of kitchen herbs. The result is otherworldly.

A rosemary leaf (Rosmarinus officinalis) looks like a fuzzy animal or a long-lost relative who forgot to shave. This hair is functional and helps the plant withstand droughts and other harsh conditions, but it also adds a texture to the rosemary itself when it is used in cooking, a texture that is subtle and yet detectable, a hint of fur on the tongue.
