And here on the left side the newly described horse fly (or gad fly) with the interesting name Scaptia beyonceae

Why this name? Because of the conspicuous "buttocks" Posted Image

Here are two great TED videos on Biomimicry, a "new discipline that studies nature's best ideas and then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems":


Michael Pawlyn is a British architect who headed the Eden Project: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Eden_Project and has been working on environmentally sustainable projects that are influenced by nature.








Janine M. Benyus is an American natural sciences writer who popularised the term biomimicry through her books and founder of a non-profit organisation-the Biomimicry Institute.
