Notes

This image shows connective tissue deep in skin.  

A small amount of subcutaneous adipose tissue appears near the center of the image.  Fibrous connective tissue of the dermis occupies the remaining regions and includes a conspicuous artery, several small veins, a portion of a sweat gland, and a pair of small peripheral nerves.  

The pink color in this image represents eosinophilic material, in this case mostly one of the following:

The pale background color represents unstained material, in this case one of the following:.

The very dark purple (nearly black) spots are cell nuclei.  At this resolution, they cannot be individually identified except by context.

Bright red within the artery represents many red blood cells.
