Caption: Common wasp (Vespula vulgaris), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). These wasps are social insects. They live in underground nests of up to around 10,000 workers. They are omnivorous, feeding on fallen fruit, nectar and carrion, but mostly catching other insects. This image shows the head, the legs, the antennae, the thorax, and the abdomen. Magnification: x3.5 when printed at 10 centimetres high.
