Moth eye. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a lens in a compound eye from a moth (order Lepidoptera). Compound eyes are made up of many of these lenses called ommatidia. A compound eye is not very good at distinguishing detail, but it does allow for the detection of tiny movements. Magnification unknown.
