Caption

Ant. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the underside of an ant (family Formicidae). The head is at upper centre, with its two compound eyes (red). The two antennae (long, thin, sensory structures) are at upper right and upper left, and are attached to the head between the eyes. Below the antennae attachment points are the various mouthparts of the ant. These include sensory palps and mandibles used to cut up food. The ant's head is attached to its thorax, to which are attached the ant's six jointed legs (across bottom). The thorax is attached to the abdomen (partially seen in the background). Ants are social insects that can form colonies of several million individuals.
