Red Spider Mite

This SEM image is of a spider mite that I found in my back yard. You may recognize the little red spider that this is an image of. I did not include the whole back end, but you can see the start of his last two legs near the bottom of the picture. This was taken using the Hitachi SEM at 1000x magnification, it's made up of 210 pictures.

  1. I want to see the spider mites in more detail. How, for example, would they look if magnified to the length of a computer screen?

    By the way, I am featured on the BBC website and anxious to bring my weblinks to everyone's attention. Simply visit Google and search the web for Jeremy Keller to access the details.
