Caption: Ground beetle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a ground or carab beetle (family Carabidae) with a fly (grey) in its jaws. The beetle's compound eyes (orange) are seen at lower left and top centre. Most of these beetles are fast-running carnivores which are active at night. They are named ground beetles as they spend most of their time on or under the ground. Magnification unknown.
