Caption

Springtail body hair. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a hair on the body of a springtail (order Collembola), a primitive insect. The springtail has existed unchanged for millions of years, and is considered a living fossil. It lives mainly in leaf litter, and feeds on decaying organic matter. It takes its name from its ability to flick its tail downwards, causing it to leap in the air. It does this to avoid predators. Magnification: x6000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
