Caption: Midge head. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of part of the head of a midge, showing an antenna (yellow, lower right) and a compound eye (purple, top). The eye is formed from numerous lens structures known as ommatidia. Midges are tiny flies that feed on the blood of animals by inserting a needle-like proboscis (not seen). Magnification: x350 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
