Caption: Animated image of an insect's view of flower meadow, as seen through compound eyes. Amongst the flowers seen here are red poppies, blue cornflowers and orange & white daisies. The image is a mosaic made up of small sections, representing the numerous visual units (called ommatidia) which make up a compound eye. Each ommatidium comprises a cuticular lens leading to light-sensitive cells. The view from an insect's compound eye is not as sharply focused as that of a single-lens eye (such as a human's).
