Caption: Springtail. Scanning electron micrograph of a springtail (suborder Collembola), showing its head and antennae. Springtails are primitive wingless hexapods that are frequently found in leaf litter and other decaying material. They have a hinged appendage (furcula, not seen) on their abdomen that enables them to jump about a hundred times their body length in one leap. To move, the furcula is bent forward and held in place. When released, the springing action propels the animal through the air. Magnification: x50 when printed 10 centimetres wide.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not available.
