And here we watch as the large raindrop preys on the small weaker drops. Devouring them in one fluid motion.
Ever wondered how velcro works? This colored SEM image, taken at 15x magnification, should give you some idea.
Instability is a common feature of fluid flows and can generate a near infinite set of patterns. The video above shows the Saffman-Taylor instability, an interface instability that occurs when a fluid of lower viscosity is injected into a higher viscosity fluid. In this case, the fluids inhabit a thin space between two glass plates. The less viscous fluid displaces the more viscous one in a series of branching finger-like shapes. If the situation were reversed, with a more viscous fluid injected into a less viscous one, the interface would be stable and expand radially without any pattern formation.

The excretory system of Schmidtea mediterranea, a small freshwater flatworm. S. mediterranea have a remarkable ability to regenerate. Cutting one in half will generate two fully functional flatworms; cutting it into quarters will generate four; and so on. In fact, scientists have shown that even a single cell from one flatworm is capable of regenerating an entire organism.
