The compound eye of a Hornet (Vespa crabro) consists of thousands of individual photoreceptor units and the image perceived by the insect is a combination of numerous inputs. The honeycomb shaped individual “eye/lens-units” are located on a convex surface pointing in slightly different directions. Compared with simple eyes, compound eyes possess a very large view angle, and can detect fast movement and, in some cases, the polarization of light.
