Caption: Locust vision research. Migratory locust (Locusta migratoria), suspended from above, flying while having its visual sensory abilities investigated in a laboratory. The locust is flying in the wind from a 'wind tunnel', the structure at left. This structure consists of drinking straws being used to channel the flow of air towards the locust. Photographed at the University of Newcastle, UK.
