The bee’s eyes, like those of other insects, differ greatly from human eyes. They consist of a pair of compound eyes made up of numerous six-sided facets. They also have three simple eyes. Despite this, their vision is believed to be sharp for a distance of only about 1 m (3 ft.). The picture below highlights the three simple eyes as “Compound Eye” which is a mistake, I believe – but otherwise it is a good picture. The two, large, compound eyes are titled “Lens”.
Bees are capable of seeing ultraviolet light, which is invisible to humans. The bee is capable of navigating by ultraviolet light, which even penetrates cloud cover.
