Imagine seeing the world through a butterfly's eyes! Butterflies, along with most adult insects, have a pair of spherical compound eyes which they use to view the world. These compound eyes are made up of thousands upon thousands of microscopic lenses - each with an individual light receptor. These lenses work together to give the butterfly a "mosaic" of the view around them.
