Caption: Mosquito compound eye. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface of a compound eye from a mosquito (family Culicidae). Compound eyes are made up of many lenses called ommatidia (the round units). A compound eye is not very good at distinguishing detail, but it does allow small movements to be detected. Magnification unknown.
