Similar to most other adult insects, the butterfly also has a pair of spherical compound eyes, each comprised of hundreds of hexagon lens -- "ommatidia" -- individual light receptors adorned with their very own microscopic lenses. These helps the butterfly gain a mosaic view of the surrounding scenery. Moreover, the butterfly can catch the UV-light which is invisible to mankind and this could in turn direct the creature to those flowers full of honey.
