 Abstract: The compound eyes of higher flies are exceptional with regard to several aspects. Everything seems to be adapted for one purpose: to detect even small modulations in light intensity. This then allows landing even on a white sheet of paper, or to detect females over quite a distance. Pecularities concern the optics as well as the neural connections between retina and the first optic ganglion, but also the visual pigments. Properties of the latter will be described.
