The Amazing Thrips

That's a picture of a wasp (Megaphragma mymaripenne), a Paramecium, and an amoeba all at the same scale. A multi-celled animal smaller than single cell organisms. Amazing. I would love to see that tiny wasp compared to a gnat or a Sandfly at scale.

Very interesting stuff by the always interesting Ed Yong. Extra goodness in the comments section.
