Bugs Can Be Surprisingly Beautiful When Seen Up Close

In addition to compound eyes, flying insects, like this wasp, have simple eyes called ocelli. They are the three hemispheric bulges on top of the wasp's head.

Self defense tip. Keep a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed. More effective than mace or pepper spray. The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so spray the culprit in the eyes. They will have to go to the hospital for the antidote. More effective than mace or pepper spray. Did you also know that wasp spray will kill a snake? And a mouse! Of course - it will also kill a wasp! :)
