An apparatus for producing a natural angular radiance distribution without a point source is described. In such a lightfield springtails can maintain a positive, negative or compass orientation by performing some hundreds of jumps in the direction of respectively the largest vectors, the smallest vectors, or vectors of a given magnitude. It is concluded that the nervous mechanisms governing phototactic behaviour must include representations of, up to the present neglected, features of the natural angular radiance distribution. The consequences with respect to relevant taxis concepts are discussed.
