Caption

Fruit fly antenna. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a male fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster). Seen here is an antenna (left) and part of a compound eye (upper right, red). Antennae are sensory structures consisting of small fleshy pads with bristle-like extensions (aristas). Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood. Magnification: x391 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
