Because I need a break from homework and everyone loves an awesome scanning electron microscope (SEM) image.
Isn’t it gorgeous? This image was taken during my SEM course last week and was part of my homework. We’re learning how the SEM works and taking cool pictures in the process. This is a shot of some antenna filament on a mayfly. I can’t tell you much more about it, but you should click on it anyways to take in the hi-res splendor.
