This mouse cell may appear to be ensnared in a glowing net, but the greenish filaments are microtubules: minute pipes that shape the cell and help shuttle chromosomes and organelles around. The photo is one of more than 1500 free biology images available at the Learning and Teaching Support Network, hosted by the University of Leeds, U.K.

Instructors can download everything from a close-up of an ant's head to a shot of a dainty bee orchid to a cross section of skin. Botany, ecology, and histology are particularly well represented. Researchers and other shutterbugs can offer their best shots to the collection.
