Technically, it would be impossible for moths or butterflies to blink, considering that they have two compound eyes, and no eyelids.

For those who are wondering, an insect’s view of the world would be vastly different from ours. Everything would be rounded, for instance. Also, they would be able to “see” with less blind spots than us. They are especially good at detecting movement.

The popular belief is that insects with compound eyes would see tons of little pictures, almost as if we were looking through multiple telescopes at the same time. However, this isn’t quite true. While they do see hundreds of tiny pictures at the same time,  their eyes would have to be 11 meters across the diameter to see at our resolution. That would be a pretty ridiculous-looking insect! Anyway, the images they see are much tinier than ours….and that is your insect trivia of the day!
