Caption: Fly inter-eye bristles, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This is a close-up of scales in the area between the eyes of a small fly. The sensory hairs and bristles on a fly help it to sense movement in the surrounding air. This fly is a moth fly (family: Psychodidae), also known as a drain fly or sewer gnat. For a fuller view of the fly, see image C036/9495.
