    Dear MKumar.
    What a stunning and beautiful image of insect tracheal system.

    Could you share what insect you used, how did you mount your slide and a microscopic picture of the insect. The community would love to see a broader perspective – stunning image.

      Dear sir,
      Thank you for your appreciation sir, Insect name flying ants (Lasius niger), I used paper slide for saw the insect parts separably (leg, wing and antenna).The flying ants you encounter in your town or garden are almost certainly the black garden ant (scientific name: Lasius niger). Their nests have a single queen and typically around 5,000 workers, although there can be as many as 15,000.
