An illustrated article in the current December 2012 Issue 206 of Micscape Magazine:

Thanks Rik.
I have never worked out how to link to a specific article Sad

It's simple but tricky. Visit http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/indexmag.html and find a link to your article. Hover over that link as if you were going to visit it. But then instead of left-clicking to visit the article, do a right-click to pop up a menu of other options. From the popup menu, select "Copy Link Location" (Firefox) or "Copy Shortcut" (Internet Explorer) or the equivalent entry in any other browser. That puts the URL on the clipboard, and from there it's just a paste into the forum posting.

When you hover over the link, most browsers will show you the target URL at the bottom of the browser window. That's a handy way to confirm what you're going to get with the right-click & Copy.

Micscape is one of the very few sites I've seen that makes it this hard.

To protect against the possibility that Micscape will reorganize their site in the future, it's a nice touch to include the issue numbers and title of the article. I've added that information to my earlier post here.

Very interesting article, Tony. I'd never heard of halteres before; will probably never again see a dipteran up close without looking for them.
