Any chance one of you clever folk steer me to a place to help fill in the gaps? Or tell me what im supposed to be looking at here? That Kidney one has had me trawling all of the websites for the best part of an afternoon, sorry about the quality of the drawings.
Thanks in advance (ps Im an engineer not a biology dude!)

See here and you might want to know that the opposite of efferent iis afferent...

Blood is also a bad name for the top left picture. There are many types of cells in blood, and not all of them do have a nucleus.

you need to fill in: efferent arteriole, afferent arteriole, glomerulus, Bowman's capsule.

the bloodcell drawn here is a polymorphonuclear granulocyte (PMN)

(wow i still know the anatomy of the kidney :p)

Just a bit correction, you should name it "spermatozoon" rather than "sperm" because the latter refers to "spermatozoon + its survival media" a.k.a "semen" ;)

What do you mean by "cytoplasm centriole"? I think it refers to "cytoplasm" only :?

For "bone", you should name it as "compact bone" because there are some kinds of bones ;)

It is a statoreceptor inside canalis semicircularis (ampula). Column-shaped cells are hair cells, whereas the dome is cupula. The tail is a nerve :)
