For a change of pace, some scanning electron micrographs from the braconid wasp project I’ve been working on:

Heterospilus wasp (Costa Rica). Click to enlarge- they're impressive at full resolution!

I’ve had to re-calibrate my sense of imaging to make these pictures. Electron beams do not work like photons, and electron microscopy has a different set of quirks than standard light microscopy and macrophotography. These images are sharp as a tack, at once both more and less real than optical images.
