Head of Common Fruit Fly

Sample collected from above my bed in Avery House on 5/31/19 at ~4:30pm.

The fly was pressed against the wall shown above with a finger, then placed onto a slide with a cover slip and inserted into the foldscope. Both of its antennas’ flagellar structures and the silhouette of its compound eyes can be seen.
