    The connection is “Robert Hooke”

    1. Hooke’s microscope, from an engraving in Micrographia.
    2. Hooke’s drawing of flea’s eyes.
    3. Hooke’s drawing of a flea.

    Hooke famously describes a fly’s eye and a plant cell (where he coined the term”cell” because plant cells, which are walled, reminded him of a monk’s quarters).
    He is known for his law of elasticity (Hooke’s law), his book, Micrographia, and for first applying the word “cell” to describe the basic unit of life.
