Animal Architecture (193) More files... by Ingo Arndt
From the intricate 'love nests' of Guinean Bower Birds to the towering nests constructed by Australian termites Ingo Arndt documents the delicate and ingenious shelters animals build to protect themselves and their young. Baya weaver birds clip of long blades of grass to weave together a nest so strong they are waterproof and can withstand intense tropical storms - the birds even build 'practice nests' for juveniles to experiment on. With just silk pebbles and shells caddis fly larvae create protective receptacles into which they can escape in case of danger. Honeybees generate their own building materials. Each worker bee has eight glands that secrete wax onto its abdomen which the bees use to build their honeycombs. Animal Architecture has been released into Germany with great success; in April of 2014 and English language version will be available.
