Dragon Fly Eyes

I try to see something new every day. Look at this dragon fly's eyes closely. The eye is divided into at least two regions. The upper region seems to have slightly larger sections(ommatidia), perhaps for detecting movement. The lower region's ommatidia are smaller, perhaps for seeing detail.
