 Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Photos…
All these pictures are from the book ‘ Microcosmos,’ created by Brandon Brill from London. This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, human body parts and household items. 
These are the most amazing images of what is too small to see with the naked eye.
An ant, Formica fusca, holding a microchip
Surface of an Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory silicon microchip
Eyelash hairs growing from the surface of human skin
The surface of a strawberry
Bacteria on the surface of a human tongue
Human sperm (spermatozoa)

Nylon hooks and loops of Velcro
Household dust: includes long hairs of cat fur, twisted synthetic and woolen fibers, 
serrated insect scales, a pollen grain, and plant and insect remains
The weave of nylon stocking fibers
The head of a mosquito
Head louse clinging to a human hair
Eight eyes (two groups of four) on the head of a tarantula

No wonder modern forensics 
solves so many crimes.
