Dung Beetle

Nature’s marvel.

The dung beetle is among the most remarkable designs in the natural world. It is probably the strongest known macro organism, capable of moving a weight over a thousand times its own. One species of the dung beetle uses light from the Milky Way as a navigational aid.

These images from 2007 were taken in the desert near Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
