Busy birds and bees

Here's some eye candy to get you through the weekend.
If you take a close look at the bee, it has a science-fiction-meets-beauty-queen look with its hard black armour and fur coat. Do you see what I mean?
Cliff swallows were busy this Spring building these lovely mud nests. One day architects, engineers, urban planners, or scientists will study the nests and adapt their structures to existing or emerging technologies à la biomimicry. Aren't they beautiful?
