I have my lovely Biology class in college to thank for this amazing picture. :heart:

We were studying the life cycles of different types of photosynthetic organisms. This is an algae in its gametophyte phase, which is the phase that occurs in between two sporophyte phases, when algae looks like the plant-like form we all know. :D

At the bottom of the "heart" are the male gametes, which swim up to the center of the "heart" toward the female gametes. This image shows a little diagram although it's not very detailed.

Anyway, I thought this was gorgeous. It's not everyday that you can use microscopes to see this kind of thing. XD

By the way, I wasn't totally sure how to classify this... I had a bit of trouble classifying it when I entered it into some groups. XD
