Amazing how a piece of music can set the tone. I almost felt like I was watching a Ghibli film there! (Strange but wonderful creatures... maybe a bit less touchy than in Nausicaä...)

Haha, now that you mention it, I can totally imagine that music being in a Ghibli film! :)

i love the dimorphism in these. It's like two different species.

Indeed, sexual dimorphism is the best, because then it's like you have adults of two species in one! :D Plus it makes sexing adults a breeze! :P

It also tells us that new genetic info is spread by the males. But wait can these actually fly?

I assume they can fly, haven't seen them do it myself though, they are very laid back and not easily frightened, so none of mine have even tried flying.
