Ant Lab is the YouTube channel of the Evolutionary Biology & Behavior Research Lab at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences & North Carolina State University. You can find some gorgeous and informative videos of all sorts of insects there, and today we offer you some soothing moth flight for your Friday relaxation. As Antlab’s Adrian Smith explains:
I think all of science boils down to trying to do things in order to see and appreciate the world in a new way. Most of the time, that means doing experiments, gathering data, or testing hypotheses. But sometimes, I think the most useful thing I can do as a scientist is to point the fancy science cameras at some moths flapping their wings in front of a purple background. I mean, whose day isn’t going to be better after watching a pink and yellow rosy maple moth fly in super slow motion?

Love Crotty’s Friday contributions!
Ditto that. They don’t stir up multiple, passionate comments like some of the M-Th posts, but always interesting. Sometimes beautiful.

Nature can be so beautiful if we take the time to observe.
