NOW WE SEE YOU - A damselfly appears to play hide and seek with the photographer as it attempts to conceal itself behind the stem of a flower. However, it's big eyes are the big give away! Sonia Hill, 41, from Calne in Wiltshire, UK, said: "I really enjoy macro photography and when I saw the damselfly move behind the stem I thought there would be a fun image to get here!" Sonia explained: "I've attempted to get a 'hide and seek' picture a few times before, but this is the first time I've been happy with the result." The dark spots on the insects compound eyes are called pseudopupils and they are an optical illusion. Compound eyes are made of many ommatidia, the photoreceptor cells that make up an insects eye. These cells appear black when pointing at the observer because they absorb the incidental light that lands on them. Sonia said: "It was great to meet such a cooperative damselfly! Usually they just fly away." Please byline: Sonia Hill/Solent News ? Sonia Hill/Solent News & Photo Agency UK +44 (0) 2380 458800
