Quite the Rack Ya Got There
Once again, I got an image and a few links, then back to the spinning plates.
This little fella (and in this case an insect is easy to sex) was on the screen the other day. Full width just about an inch. But what caught my eye and made me want to get a closer look (via iPhone 6s camera) was this moth’s remarkable antennae.
Turns out thisÂ extra-showy rack is a multi-use body part…inspiring medical research, used in a gyroscopic or other coordinating way for flight, and of course finding that elusive female by whiffing a single molecule across miles of distance.
