Caption: False colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a hover fly (family Syrphidae), showing the two large compound eyes and below them the antennae. On the last, enlarged segment of each antennae are two finer projections called aristae. At bottom of image is the base of the proboscis, the feeding organ, which is adapted for sipping nectar from flowers. Hover fly larvae are parasitic on cidadas and their relatives.
