From The Telegraph: "A Swiss scientist named Martin Oeggerli, who uses the name "Micronaut" for his art, uses a scanning electron microscope to capture images of pollen grains."

From the top down: 1) forget-me-not pollen on a petal; 2) acanthus; 3) grains of pollen on a geranium stigma; 4) silver-leaf tree pollen, which has a sticky coating that makes it easier for animals to carry around; 5) pollen from an alder tree; 6) bromelia pollen; 7) pine pollen.
