Caddisfly larvae build protective cases using materials found in their environment. Artist Hubert Duprat supplied them with gold leaf and precious stones. This is what they created. Don't know whether to pin this in Animals, or Art!

GM insects released onto crops. Oxitec has already developed a number of GM insects, including moths and mosquitoes. Its technology involves inserting a lethal gene into male insects which are then released in large numbers to mate with their wild female counterparts. This gene is passed on to any resulting offspring, such as caterpillars, which die quickly before attacking vegetable crops, so boosting farm yields and profits.

Could millions of GM insects be released into British crop fields without safety checks?
