Caption: Stalk-eyed fly eye. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an eye (orange) of the stalk- eyed fly (family Diopsidae). Stalk-eyed flies are mostly tropical insects, with one species being found in North America. Their compound eyes are at the end of stalks, the length of which varies and can be as long as their bodies. Although having their eyes on stalks allows a greater range of vision, it also poses an aerodynamic handicap.
