Photo: This image depicts the hair covering portions of the Allomyrina dichotoma hind wings. For this image, a section was cut from a dead beetle wing and ~5nm of Pt/Pd alloy was sputter coated onto it prior to imaging. The image is magnified at 682X and has been taken at a low accelerating voltage of 2kV to avoid charging. The image has been colored to provide better contrast from the background seen in the top left corner (Anmiv Prabhu).
