THE FLY



THE FLY

"… cannot create (even) a fly…"

"O men! Here is a parable set forth! listen to it! Those on whom, besides Allah, you call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they all met together for the purpose! and if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. Feeble are those who petition and those whom they petition! No just estimate have they made of Allah: for Allah is He Who is strong and able to Carry out His Will"(Surat al-Hajj (The Pilgrimage) 73-74)



PANORAMIC SIGHT FROM THOUSANDS OF LENSES.

The hexagonal shaped lenses constituting the eyes of a fly provide a much larger area of sight than an ordinary lens does. The number of these lenses may sometimes be as many as 5.000 in some flies. Additionally, the spherical structure of the eyes also enables the fly to see its back, and thus gives it a great advantage against its enemies.



THE ABSORBENT PUMP OF THE FLY: TRUNK.

Another specific feature of the flies is the way they digest food. Unlike many other living organisms, flies digest food not in their mouth, but outside of their body. They pour a special liquid over the food by means of their trunk, which makes the food get in the proper degree of consistency for absorption. Then the food is absorbed by the fly with the absorbent pumps in its throat.
