Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a female Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata). Note compound eyes, tinted gold, with the edges of the wings to the left & right. The Mediterranean fly is of great agricultural importance, damaging fruit crops in California, Hawaii & other parts of the world. They lay their eggs in fruit which the larvae subsequently eat & destroy.
