BBC News – Footage reveals how insects use their bodies to hover
This piece from the BBC news website all about how insects hover reminded me of a previous blog post, Death of an Insect, a short animated film which uses dead insects in a beautiful, slightly macabre and wonderfully eerie dance. I have been lucky enough to be given a copy of the film by the makers; if anyone wants to see it let me know. Have a look at the making of the film for some amazing insights into the special effects that went into the piece even if you think it is not your cup of tea. You may be pleasantly surprised..
