The 7 inch diameter star shaped Star of Bethlehem orchid from Madagascar, has an almost 12 inch long slender nectar tube. It takes a special moth, the hawkmoth.(moth family Sphingidae, in the order Lepidoptera {butterflies and moths}).with its 11 inch proboscis to be attracted in order to do the pollenation. Unlike butterflies, hawkmoths hover in the air while feeding at a flower, similar to the actions of hummingbirds. Under cold conditions, hawkmoths may quiver flight muscles to generate heat before flying off. Known as thermoregulation, this behavior is unusual in insects.....comprised from information in.Smithsonian Magazine.(si.edu), April, 2000, 'Birds, Bees And Even Nectar Feeding Bats Do It' and Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99.

Bees see colors we don't. We see colors they can't. Ants and bees can't see red. Hummingbirds like red best. 

"The oak toad uses its versatile eyes to push food down its throat! It does this by moving its eyeballs into the root of its mouth."....Discover Magazine, December 99, page 96. Diversity of design in eyes of animals is phenomenal!

How does the toad know which way to go when in spring it emerges from its soil covered burrow in the Earth?

How does it know what his tongue is for? How's it able to identify its ability to shoot out his sticky tongue so it can draw in the bugs it retrieves? How does the toad know it's a terrestrial.(relating to Earth or its inhabitants).being when it was hatched in a pond?

Toads control slugs and grasshoppers and other bugs by eating them.
   And oh! the wasp!

The turtle too! Just how does it know after it hatches from its egg to immediately head to water and how does it know where the water is, because it heads in that direction, instead of heading inland and away from the water?

Insects:.Insects have ultraviolet vision enabling them to see special markings on flowers to guide them to see deep inside the flower to the nectar wells, similar to how pilots use runway lights to guide them upon descent. Insects are the only invertebrates that fly.

Peahens:.Among peahens the most attractive peacock types are the ones with the biggest fans.(1, 2). But the big fan on the tail makes it difficult to escape a predator. The big fan peacock type of peahen has the least chance of survival. Is this a problem for Darwin's idea of "survival of the.fittest"? Why would evolution have evolved that which would tend to decrease chances of survival? Why evolution is stupid.

Red Harvester and other Ants.(Pogonomyrmex barbatus):.How did the inheritance of ant colony behavior evolve? What past conditions contributed to this? Why do some colonies reproduce more than others? Why does the behavior of ants in a colony, as well as how they relate to each other, change as the colony grows older and larger? Why does a colony live from ten to twenty years, yet single ants live only one year? Ant colony behavior is extremely complex. Biologists admit a lack of understanding here. Why does Creator-God do things as He does?

Being in such close quarters, ants have a way to ward.(keep safe).off disease. They make their own antiseptics. 

Ants have many tasks that they had to know from their beginning to survive. Tasks involving collecting and distributing food, building a nest, care for the eggs, larvae and pupae, knowing when to quickly repair the damaged nest, etc. And in all this, task allocation continues to be a mystery...

The queen exercises no authority. The workers 'somehow' know to switch tasks as needed, some foraging.(searching).for food, others repairing the nest, etc., yet a different group may do these functions another day. Ants do several tasks.."An ant does not respond the same way every time to the same stimulus; nor does a colony."....Deborah M. Gordon, Professor of Biology at Stanford University. Her book is.Ants At Work: How An Insect Society Is Organized. We do not understand behavior here, in that, for one example, how they know to maintain 5 millimeters of space allotted per ant. They have some built in sense of density. 

When a queen ant is separated from her colony, the remaining worker ants will continue building fervently according to plan. However, if the queen is killed, all work in the colony stops. No ant will know what to do. Apparently, the queen transmits the 'building plans' even if far away, via the group consciousness with her subjects. She can be as far away as she wants, as long as she is alive. Everything is connected in the universe by the invisible grid far below the atom.

The conundrum is that ant behavior lacks identity and agency, yet their overall behavior arises from interactions between these components. Ants form huge colonies and exhibit a high organizational pattern. Where does the information come from to build such elaborate nests? They seem to utilize patterns that are intrinsic.

Why are their levels of activity periodic? Sometimes the nest is quiet. Other times a flurry of activity abounds. This activity is apart from their DNA and bespeaks rules beyond individual ant actions:.Isaiah 40:26,28 "Lift up your eyes on high and behold who has created these things, that brings out their host by number. He calls them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power not one fails. Have you not known? Have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding.".There are some things that we are forever trying to understand, like water.

Sterile worker class ants pose another problem for evolution. That of the loss of reproductive potential in most individuals of a species. The workers are the vast majority of both ants, wasps, bees, etc. As Darwin himself said."it posed a special difficulty which could prove fatal to his theory", in that the structure of the workers would not be affected by natural selection because they are sterile and produced no offspring. 
  Why is it that any eggs left unfertilized develop into males?

Aphids:.Dying aphids send an alarm signal to warn others about trouble. Other trouble can be that of becoming a slave.
   Aphids got antifreeze!

Dholes:.A wild Asian dog with reddish fur and usually hunts in a pack. Although there are several females in a pack.(up to 25), only one female does all the breeding and mostly from one male. Another conundrum for evolution, as the struggle for life and reproduction is dealt another blow. 

It's a conundrum because it's against evolutionary thinking being that, all the females should breed as often as they could as thye would then produce enough so that strongest would be there and perhaps have the greatest chance of survival to produce even more stronger ones, thus improving the robustness and ensuring continuance of them. Evolutionary thinking being that of survival of the fittest and that of an end result being a master race of them. Study more on natural history at naturalhistory.com

Spiders:."Without spiders, within 6 months most of our crops, trees and grasses would be gnawed to their roots by unchecked hordes of locusts and other herbivorous insects. While these are eating the plants, the numbers of disease carrying mosquitoes, flies and ticks.(wingless blood sucking insects or mites, insects with 4 pairs of legs, etc. that infest {harmfully inhabit}, man, cattle, sheep, etc.).would increase exponentially and would feed on us."....Kityn Cayley, scientist of biodiversity at the American Museum of Natural History.
