Instantons in the simplest supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory are considered. We introduce bosonic and fermionic collective coordinates and study how they change under the supersymmetry transformations. The instanton measure is shown to be explicitly invariant under the transformations. We discuss the relation between quantum anomalies and the functional form of the instanton measure.
