Stunning images from scanning electron microscopes give a close-up view of incredible minibeasts, revealing every hair on the back of a flea, the beautiful scales on a moth's wing, and the amazing compound eye of a fly. Discover what a fly likes to eat and how it digests its food or how a pond skater can skim across the surface of water. Learn how a colony of ants communicates, and find out if your garden might be home to the fastest beetle in the world.
