Caption: Ant eye. Close-up of the head of an ant (family Formicidae), showing on of its compound eyes. Each compound eye is made up of numerous simple eyes called ommatidia. Each ommatidium sends a signal to the fly's brain, which combines the thousands of images to form a mosaic view of the world. The image is not sharp but is excellent at detecting movement.
