Caption: Ant sensory hairs. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an ant's sensory hairs. These are bristles that are growing through the ant's exoskeleton. These structures are sensitive to air movement or touch, and in some insects specialised sensory fibres sense a wide range of conditions, such as smell and temperature. These sensory hairs are on the ant's leg.
