Reader Robert sent a photo that hides some insects (I don’t know where they all are). How many can you spot?
A slightly unusual entry for your consideration: This is the “Spot the insect” display at the Oxford University Museum for Natural History, used to show the gradual steps in the evolution of camouflage. I think it’s the same one used by Richard Dawkins in his 1991 Royal Institution Christmas lecture.
The full display has 30 insects in it, but this is only a part, and I’m not sure myself how many there are – I count seven.
I haven’t tried yet, but it’s a good way to kills some time on a lazy Friday afternoon. Click on the photo to isolate and enlarge it.
