Caption

Moth's eye. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section of a moth's compound eye. The eye has been sliced to show its internal structure, revealing the cones (yellow) whose photosensitive cells are capped by a lens (red). These two parts are known together as an ommatidium. Eyes of this design allow for the detection of small movements, but are weak in distinguishing detail.
