The Hidden Beauty in Insect Eggs

While browsing through the National Geographic website, I came across this article that shows beautiful pictures of small insect eggs. Never would I have thought a small insect's egg could display such amazing detail and hold such beauty. Some look like something you would find in a sci fi alien movie. Weird looking, but amazing all in the same.

Engineered for survival, insect eggs hang on and hatch wherever their parents deposit them. The eggs in this story range in diameter from 0.7 to 2 millimeters. The images were made with a scanning electron microscope, which uses beams of electrons to trace the surfaces of objects. The resulting black-and-white images were then colored to reflect the eggs’ natural appearance


Sorry I couldn't embed an actual picture(only links), not too sure on how to do that...anyway I hope everyone enjoys these as much as I did. Milkmustache out...

I know I put this in the wrong category, how do I move it to the correct one?
