Caption

Ant head. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of an unidentified ant (family Formicidae). Its compound eyes (orange) and two long antennae mounted on the head (upper centre) are seen. The mouthparts (centre) consist of serrated mandibles that deliver a powerful cutting bite. The two pairs of leg-like structures that protrude from the mouth are tasting organs known as palps. The ant is a social insect that can form colonies of several million. Magnification: x25 at 6x7cm size.
