Mimicing compound eye to      digital camera
Difference in normal vision    and ultraviolet vision
Plastron Breathing• This process is used for under water  breathing• Uses gas exchange mechanism through  an air bubble.
Structure of Plastrons                           Pores where air                         bubbles are trapped
Dynamic Gaping• Exchange of gases by flapping their wings                                        Gas is                   ...
