Bugs in the Movies: Miniscule

This past week has been crazy busy and I’ve barely had time to think, let alone write in my blog.  Sorry it’s been so long since I last posted something!  I really love working on my blog, so I find it sad when I can’t do it as often as I’d like.  Rather than launching into the subject of giant water bug parental care or going over how to ID the dragonflies I saw at Sweetwater Wetland as planned, I’m going with a lighter post today.  Grab some popcorn and settle in – it’s movie time!

If you’ve perused my links, you might have noticed the link to Miniscule, maybe even wondered what it is.  Miniscule is far and away my favorite source of entomologically-themed animated movies!  The movies are short, on the order of 5 minutes long, but they are brilliant.  The French team that creates the movies, about one a month, combines fantastic macro video of natural settings and 3-D animations of insects and other creepy crawlies.  The videos are silent films and rely entirely on their visuals to convey their stories, but they are reasonably accurate in their entomological details.  They are also darned cute.  So, without further ado, I present my favorite of the Miniscule movies so far – a film about a snail with dreams of greatness!
