Cell Magic

IBM’s Media Department does such a good job demonstrating  just how small a cell is.  The photo shown below has a butterfly next to a cell broadband engine – the microprocessor that greatly accelerates multimedia.  It’s difficult enough to take a still photograph of a butterfly, but how do they get it to land next to a cell?  Photoshop trick or reality?
