An electron microscope catches the immune system blooming into action. A white blood cell (red) wraps itself around a mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of most cases of tuberculosis. Phagocyte, as a white blood cell is known as, comes from the Greek word phagein (to eat), and that's what the cell does, rendering the infectious cell benign.
Kesseler has spent the last decade working as a fellow at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, photographing microscopic plant specimens including seeds, pollen, leaves and fruit.
