These images are manipulations of slides of embryonic development in a dicot angiosperm. The long and rounded multicellular structures are cotyledons, structures that resemble leaves, but only persist long enough to support the developing embryo and perhaps the young germinating plant by providing nutrition.
There appear to be tiny people in my cotyledon slides.
