Life in the Undergrowth

Alma and I were watching the first part of David Attenborough's "Life in the Undergrowth," his nature series on insects and other tiny creatures. Fascinating, as usual, from the very start, especially the play by play mating habits of the tiger slug. His special did it more justice and photographed the act beautifully, but check this out, anyway:

That blue flower? That's the two intertwined sex organs that sprout out of the slugs' heads!!!
