Caption

Springtails (order: Collembola), light micrograph. Springtails are primitive flightless arthropods, dating back some 300 million years in the fossil record. They lack external reproductive appendages and only have primitive eyes. The common name is derived from the habit of some species of using their tails to spring into the air. Magnification: x11 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
