Fact of the Day: Hairy Eyes

Did you know that honeybees have hair on their eyes?

 

 

They have five eyes, two large compound eyes, one on either side of their head and three smaller eyes, called ocelli, at the top of their heads. The compound eyes have thousands of lenses (ommatidia) which most likely give them a pixilated view of the world. Honey bees can see light, motion, and colors.
