Hawaiian Fruit Fly 
Hawaiian Fruit Fly

Two families of flies are called fruit flies; larger flies with colorful wing patterns, and the smaller vinegar flies in the family Drosophilidae, which are those used in genetic studies. Flies usually have large compound eyes, which help them to see well and in many directions at once. If you have ever tried to sneak up on a fly, you know how well this sense works!

The head of this fly is about 1 mm across.
