The corneal diameter of an omatid (which corresponds to the circular opening) of the domestic bee is 24.4 µm. At 3 m from the ground, what is the minimum separation between two points (light emitters) that the bee can see clearly? Consider the wavelength of light to be 620 nm. Tip: this is the typical problem of light diffraction in circular openings.
