The Unconscious Microscope | Monsters

Fascinating series of images in The Daily Telegraph. Using an electron microscope, scientists have taken photographs (then recoloured) of bugs and insects… and it’s amazing just how ‘monstrous’ they look.

It’s as if the human unconscious has its own microscope which has always been aware of these bizarre life-forms, which are so similar to the stuff of science fiction books that were written ages before any technology to see these tiny creatures existed.
