Incredible animal architecture around the world

When we think of world-renowned architects, rarely do termites, beavers, wasps, and birds come to mind. But after looking at these photos, they should! German photographer Ingo Arndt has put together an amazing book, Animal Architecture, which ‘captures the stunningly intricate structures that animals around the world create using nothing but nature’s raw materials and their beaks, claws, paws, and teeth’. From Australian weaver ants to Vogelkop gardener bowerbirds, this collection is rather spectacular and draws you into the beauty all around us.
