We use laser-induced electron diffraction (LIED) to self-image the molecular structure of an isolated water molecular ion using its own retuning attosecond electron wave packet (EWP). Using LIED's subfemtosecond and picometre spatio-temporal resolution imaging capabilities, we observe the symmetric stretching of the O-H and H-H internuclear distances with increasing laser field strength.
