Interlude for some nature gawking

Not my usual sort of post but these two creatures have amazed me recently with their unimaginable uniqueness. The 88 Butterfly (Diaethria_Anna) and the Feather Star (Crinoid). 


Butterly source.

Bonkers. The pair of them. More examples of nature and evolution being far more innovative that humans. Planet Earth 2 is another obvious source for this sort of amazement at the moment. Has anyone else noticed more than ever before however, that people are commenting on how brutal nature is? Have we gotten softer?
