Abstract
The housefly is equipped with an excellent visual guidance, flight control system which enables it to track small, fast moving objects in its visual field[1,2]. These mechanisms of visual orientation and guidance were investigated by means of an analysis of chasing flight induced by visual objects [3-8]. The acceleration of the chasing fly was investigated by analyzing the trajectories of its chasing flight in free flight conditions in a cage. In order to record the three-dimensional trajectories of the flies in the cage, a mirror was mounted beneath the bottom of the cage at 45 degree angle. A high speed cine camera was used and run at 200 frames per second.
