This exquisite electron microscope (EM) image shows the captivating world of a housefly in mesmerizing detail, offering a profound glimpse into the intricate anatomy of this tiny creature. The fly is bathed in golden-yellow hues, which gracefully envelop the body, emphasizing its delicate features. As the viewer's gaze is drawn closer, the true marvel of the image becomes apparent: the individual hairs on the fly's head have been painstakingly coloured by hand.

The fly's head shows us the wonders of nature's engineering, showcasing a multitude of sensory and functional elements. The intricacies of its compound eyes, a mosaic of tiny facets, glisten like jewels in the sunlight. Each facet captures a unique perspective of the world, reflecting the complexity of the fly's visual perception. The antennae, slender and graceful, extend outward, providing the fly with a sophisticated array of olfactory and tactile sensors.

Artists: Langley Anderson and Stefan Meichtry.
