    If you go down a little smaller to micro organisms, you can find truly nightmarish creatures,

    You can literally copy and paste an image. Not a URL - an actual image.

    1. Right click on any online image (that's isn't some weird SVG or something).
    2. Select "copy image".
    3. Place cursor in SciFo editing window.
    4. Ctrl-V.
    That's what I did with the flying murder-spider, above, right from a Google Images thumbnail.

    joking - I actually like spiders being around.

    those look like the cute, tinier roaches they have in South Miami.... of course, in Miami, the roaches are bigger, armed and wear gang colours, so they're recognizable from a distance of at least half a mile. and they have an air force, cause the f*ckers FLY!

    Have you noticed, from the back it looks like a person with a funny hat and a large cape.

    There was a movie of such a creature: Mimic.

    Not too bad. Kinda interesting in concept of insect mimicry in a world occupied by humans.


    and another clip


    A novel twist, in this species there is only one fertile male (king) instead of one fertile female (queen)..........

    No, that is not the tiniest person in the world holding it!

    (Thanks for details on posting pics... thought there was something more complicated involved, as wasn’t sure allowed to just past links direct to pictures)

    Make sure you do not highlight the picture. Just place cursor over picture and right click. It will tell you if the "image" can be copied. Select copy and paste. You can verify the copy in "preview" of your post.

    Place cursor on pic and right click. Look for "copy image".

    If you have a stylus (mine is a pen with a rubber tip on top) you hold the stylus with a firm pressure on the picture and a menu comes up with one option being COPY and another one being DOWNLOAD

    ain't that the truth...
    it's weird though. Your pics are frightening and mesmerising at the same time.
    the top right picture looks like a bug-eyed vampire worm that has brain damage though... LOL

    I don't know why but... this guy just looks happy. his name must be Carl.

    This guy below must have forgotten his teeth before the photo shoot... LMFAO
