  1. Beautiful representation of the spiral which allows us to move forward at all times. Thank you for explaining the wing motion; how a horizontal move to drive vertically by spiraling out and in.

  2. Science covering a nature paper – interesting :p
    The Oxford Flight Group made an indepth video covering this research by the way!

  3. I never kill mosquitoes when I find them in my house. I capture them with a cup and a sheet of paper and I release them outside the house. One night, I searched for a mosquito in my bedroom for like half an hour and when I tried to release it through my window, it got back into the house hahaha.
    They're only trying to survive, like us.
