Amazing. With the rapid advance of communication techonolgy, in particular the internet, we can watch all sort of things readily at home within 5 minutes. Just 20 years ago, it would take months of research and digging in libraries.
Beetle are interested to me in particular of their anatomy. in particular, they have a hard protective shell cover for their wings, called Elytron. Also, their wings are folded! Folded wings is quite fascinating from the design perspective. The elytron function as a armor, of course. Imagine that. The disadvantage is of course the weight and decreased mobility. Another intriguing thing about insects is the Antenna (biology). In particular, read about their functionality.
