SEM of ladybird over a flower

Ladybird in flight. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a seven-spot ladybird beetle Coccinella septempunctata, flying over a flower. The outer wings of the ladybird are strengthened into a hard covering called the elytra (red, black spots) to protect the delicate flight wings (long, white) found beneath. These elytra are raised in flight, while other transparent hind-wings (not seen) propel the insect. Seven black spots are found on the red wing covers of this ladybird. The red and black colours are a warning to predators, because this beetle is able to squirt distasteful fluids. Magnification: x2.9 at 6x7cm size. Magnification: x7.5 at 7x6 inch size

SEM of bed bugs

Bed bugs mating. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a pair of bed bugs mating. Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are blood sucking insects, so called because they live in the beds of humans. Mating in bed bugs (and related families) is unique amongst the insects. The male (above) does not introduce his sperm into the female's vaginal opening. Instead he punctures the body wall of one of the female's abdominal segments and deposits his sperm in a sac. This is called traumatic insemination. Two to four gener- ations can be bred yearly, so that under suitable conditions infestation of a house can occur rapidly. Magnification x10 at 5x7cm size. Magnification: x22 at 6x4.5 inch size
