Caption: Fruit fly. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a fruit fly (Drosophila busckii). Its two compound eyes (red) are seen on either side of the head. Between the eyes are the antennae, which consist of small fleshy pads with bristle-like extensions called aristas. Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood. Magnification: x55 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
