      I’ve been looking at lots of different insects under the microscope this year. They look incredible under the microscope, you realise just how different they all are. My favourite is the fairy wasp family – they are the smallest insects in the world and look just like a speck of dust to the naked eye. But under the microscope they have amazing frilly wings that look like peacock feathers.
