By Marissa Holden - Pictured are some very hungry blowflies clinging to a sugar coated matchstick. As the average matchstick weighs around 200mg and average fly weighs around 600mg this would be the equivalent to somebody holding up a third of their body weight in midair!
Finally! The teaching time is coming again! Next week is optometry seminar for medical students! Must be even more fun, joy, curiosity, questions and discussion than last semester. So excited!
The hoverfly vision group can be found at 2 locations: At Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia, and at Uppsala University in Sweden. To find out more about us and our research, browse through the pages.
