Caption: Locust eye. Macrophotograph of the eye of a locust, with a stick insect (green) partially seen through it. Compound insect eyes are made up numerous individual eye units called ommatidia. These each have an individual lens and provide the insect with a mosaic view of its surroundings. Although not good for sharp vision, they are excellent at detecting movements. Magnification unknown.
