As January ends on a cold note across the UK, we can take solace in the fact that we can keep warmer than these poor animals and plants. This selection shows how they pass the winter: fighting over seeds, gnawing on bare twigs, huddled against blizzards, raiding gardens or just embracing the snow with a good roll.
Birds do it. Bees do it. Even tiny water fleas do it. Do what? Look at their surroundings, of course (what did you think?). This gallery shows the diversity of eyes in the animal kingdom: the unique sweeping multichromatic eyes of the mantis shrimp, the wavy pupils of cuttlefish, the minutely detailed domes of insects, bright birds’ eyes, well-camouflaged fish eyes and some beautifully-patterned eyes of frogs and lizards.
Come and look at the incredible world of insects. This footage gallery shows these stunning and sometimes scary looking bugs from around the world. See the beauty of Zebra Longwing butterfly feeding, an extreme close up of a hornet, the Madagascar hissing roach, the Straight snouted weevil to a terrifying Huntsman spider.
