Caption: Fly eating another fly. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a large fly (Coenosia humilis, orange) eating a smaller fruit fly (Drosophila sp.). Predatory insects such as this usually use a long proboscis to puncture their prey's hard outer layer and suck the softer innards out, leaving a dry husk. Magnification: x20 at 6x7cm size.
