Damselflies are insects of the suborder Zygoptera in the order Odonata.
A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ἄνισος anisos, "uneven" and πτερόν pteron, "wing", because the hindwing is broader than the forewing).
Entrainment, within the study of chronobiology, occurs when rhythmic physiological or behavioral events match their period to that of an environmental oscillation.
The evolution of the eye is attractive to study, because the eye distinctively exemplifies an analogous organ found in many animal forms.
Eyes are organs of the visual system.
The eyespot apparatus (or stigma) is a photoreceptive organelle found in the flagellate or (motile) cells of green algae and other unicellular photosynthetic organisms such as euglenids.
The f-number of an optical system (such as a camera lens) is the ratio of the system's focal length to the diameter of the entrance pupil.
A film, also called a movie, motion picture, moving pícture, theatrical film, or photoplay, is a series of still images that, when shown on a screen, create the illusion of moving images.
Fleas are small flightless insects that form the order Siphonaptera.
True flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek δι- di- "two", and πτερόν pteron "wings".

Grasshoppers are insects of the suborder Caelifera within the order Orthoptera, which includes crickets and their allies in the other suborder Ensifera.
The subphylum Hexapoda (from the Greek for six legs) constitutes the largest number of species of arthropods and includes the insects as well as three much smaller groups of wingless arthropods: Collembola, Protura, and Diplura (all of these were once considered insects).
Holometabolism, also called complete metamorphosis, is a form of insect development which includes four life stages: egg, larva, pupa and imago or adult.
The human eye is an organ which reacts to light and pressure.
Hymenoptera is a large order of insects, comprising the sawflies, wasps, bees, and ants.
Insects or Insecta (from Latin insectum) are hexapod invertebrates and the largest group within the arthropod phylum.
Journal of Comparative Physiology was a journal that split into Journal of Comparative Physiology A and Journal of Comparative Physiology B in 1984.
Latin (Latin: lingua latīna) is a classical language belonging to the Italic branch of the Indo-European languages.
The lens is a transparent, biconvex structure in the eye that, along with the cornea, helps to refract light to be focused on the retina.
Lepidoptera is an order of insects that includes butterflies and moths (both are called lepidopterans).
Locusts are certain species of short-horned grasshoppers in the family Acrididae that have a swarming phase.
The molluscs have the widest variety of eye morphologies of any phylum, and a large degree of variation in their function.
Myriapoda is a subphylum of arthropods containing millipedes, centipedes, and others.
Norbert Perrimon (born October 24, 1958) is a geneticist and developmental biologist at Harvard Medical School.
An ocelloid is a subcellular structure found in the family Warnowiaceae (warnowiids), which are a members of a group of unicellular organisms known as dinoflagellates.
Odonata is an order of carnivorous insects, encompassing the dragonflies (Anisoptera) and the damselflies (Zygoptera).
Ontogeny (also ontogenesis or morphogenesis) is the origination and development of an organism, usually from the time of fertilization of the egg to the organism's mature form—although the term can be used to refer to the study of the entirety of an organism's lifespan.
Orthodenticle is a homeobox gene involved in Drosophila head development.
