Color enhanced scanning electron micrograph of a deer fly eye. The large, green iridescent eyes of the deer fly are made up of thousands of individual lenses which allow the fly to see in slow motion. Each lens is approximately 25 microns in diameter. Note the short, protective hairs that emerge from the eye's surface between some of the lenses.
