Images made through a microscope. All subject types.
Not at all really. These (many of them!) were on a tall field grass that has wide flat blades. I snipped the blade on either side of the "spittle" and taped it to a slide, then carefully scraped off the bulk of the spittle until the insect was exposed. They won't sit still for long.but it must be tricky to unwrap the nymph!
