Caption: Hover fly antenna. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the base of the antenna of a hover fly (family Syrphidae). The antenna is covered with sensory hairs that allow the fly to smell food and sense movements. Insects have two antennae, found on the head between the eyes (one eye seen in the background, red). Hover flies feed on pollen and nectar from flowers. Magnification unknown.
