Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that connect veins and arteries.  Capillaries are very small.  You cannot see them like you can see some of the veins in your arm.  Capillaries distribute the blood to the cells.  Veins and arteries are the indoor plumbing of your body, but the tiny capillaries are the places where the blood does its work of feeding the cells and doing away with the wastes.
