This print showcases the intricate body surface of a hover fly, captured through a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The coloured SEM image reveals the mesmerizing details of the thorax, belonging to an unidentified hover fly from the Syrphidae family. At a magnification of x140 and printed at 6x7cm size, this photograph offers a glimpse into the fascinating world of nature's smallest creatures. The hairs and bristles covering the insect's body surface are prominently displayed in vivid detail. Each hair seems to possess its own unique texture and pattern, creating an overall impression of complexity and beauty. This close-up view allows us to appreciate the delicate anatomy that enables these insects to navigate their environment with precision. Hover flies belong to the order Insecta and play crucial roles in pollination as well as pest control. Their hairy bodies aid in carrying pollen from one flower to another, making them valuable contributors to our ecosystem. Through this image, we gain insight into their remarkable adaptations for survival. Science Photo Library has skillfully captured this moment frozen in time, highlighting both scientific curiosity and artistic appreciation for wildlife photography. This stunning print serves as a reminder of how much there is still left for us to discover about our natural world – even within seemingly ordinary insects like hover flies.
