Tiger beetles, known for their speed and agility, do an optimal reorientation dance

Tiger beetles, known for their speed and agility, do an optimal reorientation dance as they chase prey at blinding speeds, says Jane Wang, professor of mechanical engineering and physics at Cornell University, who tries to find simple physical explanations for complex, hardwired animal behaviors.

This visual representation shows a tracked tiger beetle’s trajectories as it chases prey. By observing a beetle’s chase, scientists have derived a physical law that it follows to optimize its predation strategies.

The snail

This photoset made me so happy. You go, lil snail.

what if the coins you find randomly at the bottom of drawers and in between couch cushions are actually from spiders trying to pay rent

Today I got yelled at by three different people for trapping a spider and letting it free outside. I was told 'We don't save spiders' but I was like 'I do'. I happen to think they're cute and just as deserving a chance as any other buggy wug.

omg, thank you, thank you for saving that spider despite great adversity.

I made you this badge of honor because I am so proud of you

This little guy was the cutest. I spent 20 minutes watching him move and at the end of this he threw himself off the little stump.

​I’m making some insects next…sort of tropical themed. This little lady is as big as two hands and is made from two toned taffeta…amongst other things.http://www.mister-finch.com/
