Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Drosophila has been widely used for genetic experiments, particularly on mutation, because it is easy to raise in large numbers & reproduces rapidly. Two large compound eyes are visible on either side of the head. The antennae are the small fleshy pads with bristle-like extensions called aristas. Bristles, or setae, cover the fly. Magnification: x21 at 35mm size, x42 at 6x7cm size.
