Flower petal wallpaper

Today I heard an amazing story on NPR about a bee that uses flower petals to line the nest for her egg. The resulting structure is lovely- delicate, colorful, and engineered to protect the developing larvae against weather and predators.

I'm so tickled by these I had to share.
