Hawkmoth on flower

A hawkmoth clings to a robotic flower used to study the insect’s ability to track the moving flower under low-light conditions. The research shows that the creatures can slow their brains to improve vision under low-light conditions – while continuing to perform demanding tasks. (Credit: Rob Felt, Georgia Tech)
