Caption

Stalk-eyed fly. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a stalk-eyed fly (family Diopsidae). Stalk-eyed flies are mostly tropical insects, with one species being found in North America. The length of the stalks that their eyes are on varies and can be as long as their bodies. Although having their eyes on stalks allows a greater range of vision, it also poses an aerodynamic handicap. Magnification: x40 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
