I ordered this piece which has been produced on wood and I'm extremely pleased with it. I love the work of this artist and have many of her books, several prints and a few originals. Absolutely stunning.

Love the small and narrow size on wood - fits on an icon stand for a table perfectly. Print is a a little blurry, which may be a quality of the original as it looks that way on the site as well.

I am very happy. You have done a good job.
Bee proboscis. Polarised light micrograph of the proboscis of the common honey bee (Apis mellifera). The bee's proboscis (centre) consists of two outer angled parts (the galea) and a central hairy tube (made up of two glossae). Alongside these (left and right) are the needle-shaped labial palps with segmented ends. The galea and labial palps are normally joined together forming a tube, which encloses the proboscis. The proboscis is used to feed on nectar from flowers. Spoon-shaped mandibles at the base of the glossae (green) are used for functions such as moulding the wax, feeding larvae, and grooming. Magnification: x36 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
About Dr Keith Wheeler/science Photo Library
Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library.
Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
