Caption: Aphid. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an aphid (greenfly) feeding on a leaf. Its head is seen with long antennae and two compound eyes (orange). The tube-like mouthpart (centre) penetrates the plant and is used to suck the sap from plant veins using its fine extension (red). Aphids multiply rapidly, and are serious pests of flowers, vegetables and some fruit trees. Magnification: x60 at 6x7cm size.
