Juxtaglomerular cells, renal cortex
This image from a thin (1µm) section shows sufficient detail to resolve secretory granules within juxtaglomerular cells, found in the wall of an afferent arteriole. (The clear white "bubbles" near the vascular endothelium and at upper right are preparation artefacts.)
