Bee eye, SEM Featured 9 Oct 2002 Image

Bee eye, SEM

Bee eye. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the compound eye of a honey bee (Apis mellifera). Protective hairs cover its surface. The eye consists of many visual units, known as ommatidia. Each ommatidium consists of an outer cuticle covering a lens, beneath which is a group of light-sensitive cells known as the retinula. Nerve fibres from the retinula converge onto the optic nerve, relaying visual signals to the brain. The image seen by insects with compound eyes is thought to be a mosaic image, poorly focused but good at detecting movements. Magnification: x180 at 6x7cm size

Fish-eye view of a haul of halibut on a rack

Halibut haul. Fish-eye view of a haul of Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus stenolepis) hanging on a rack in Homer, Alaska, USA. Halibut are the largest of the flatfish, and are an important and delicious food fish. They prefer living on sandy seabeds, and are found as deep as one kilometre down. They mainly eat other fish, although lobsters and squid are also taken. They are themselves eaten by sharks and seals, and of course humans. They have been hunted for centuries by native American Indians. A vitamin-rich oil is obtained from their liver, which can be taken as a dietary supplement
