Caption

Spectacle moth eggs. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the eggs of the Spectacle moth (Abrostola tripartita) on a plant. Butterflies and moths often lay their eggs on plants, thus providing the newly-hatched larvae with a ready food supply. The larva of the Spectacle moth feeds on nettles and passes the winter as a pupa. It is a fairly common species throughout Europe and Russia. Magnification: x12 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
