Caption: Fly. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a wild type fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster). Its two compound eyes (red) are seen on either side of its head. At lower centre is its proboscis, used for sucking up food. This fly is widely used in genetic experiments as it breeds rapidly and has a small, well-understood genome (genetic code). Magnification: x90 at 6x7cm size. x140 at 4x5".
