Caption: Fruit fly. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a fruit fly. One of its compound eyes (red, upper left) can be seen next to its two antennae, which consist of small fleshy pads with bristle-like extensions (aristas). Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood.
