Visual Tracking : Hot Pursuit with Tiny Eyes

Warrant, Eric J. LU (2017) In Current Biology 27(6). p.234-237
Abstract

Flying insect predators intercept their aerial prey with deadly precision. New research reveals that a tiny robber fly, with a brain smaller than a pinhead, achieves this using the same visual mechanism that we ourselves employ to catch a passing ball.
