Caption

Springtail. Scanning electron micrograph of a springtail (suborder Collembola). Springtails are primitive wingless hexapods that are frequently found in leaf litter and other decaying material. They have a hinged appendage (furcula, bottom centre) 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: x27 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
