There Was a Fly That Swallowed Some Nanonwires...

Abstract:
This bright field image, entitled Carbon Nanowires in Daphnid, shows a live daphnid (water flea), a model system for environmental toxicology, after ingesting carbon nanowires made soluble in natural organic matter.

The image was taken 80 hours after the feeding. The daphnid offers a first-hand example of nanomaterials interacting with the environment.
