Caption: Aphids. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of aphids (family Aphididae), or greenflies, feeding on a plant stem. Only their abdomens can be seen here, as their mouthparts are buried in the stem to drink the sap from it. Aphids multiply rapidly and are serious pests of flowers, vegetables and some fruit crops.
