Caption

Damselfly ocelli. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the dorsal ocelli of a damselfly. The 'simple eyes' are used together with the larger compound eyes to help the damselfly co-ordinate its movements when tracking and catching fast-moving prey. Damselflies and dragonflies prey on small flying insects. These ocelli are on the head of a large red damselfly (Pyrrhosoma nymphula) Magnification: x85 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
