Caption: Bee stinger. Scanning electron micrograph of the stinger from a European honey bee (Apis melifera). The stinger is used to inject venom when the bee feels threatened. Unlike wasps, bee stingers have barbs which prevent the bee from pulling them out. Instead, the stinger stays in the victims skin and is ripped out of the bee's body, killing the bee. Magnification x220 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
