Honeybees: Engineering Design of the Visual System
The compound eye of the bee collects a composite image of the panorama in radial coordinates over about 200° horizontally (and ±90° vertically) with about 10,000 ommatidia (analogous to pixels). The photoreceptors are of three color types, with a peak in the green, blue, or ultraviolet. As each contrast in the panorama passes, small motion detectors spanning two or three ommatidia sense the angular motion relative to the eye from the sequence of intensities. The units of pattern or place...[Show more]
