Forget about +Grumpy Cat, we've found grumpy fish. Today's Image of the Day is an endangered Spotted Handfish.  Handfish are small, bottom-dwelling fishes that would rather 'walk' on their pectoral and pelvic fins than swim.

Did you catch Catalyst the other night? They had an interesting segment on the global bee crisis. CSIRO is using sensors placed on the bees to monitor their behavior.

Image of the Day: UAV in flight

Developed by robotics researchers at CSIRO, in partnership with Biosecurity Queensland, the unmanned helicopters found weeds using sophisticated imaging technology. The helicopters are safer and a more convenient way of mapping weeds in remote and difficult terrain.

Victoria's Riflebird (Ptiloris victoriae)

The Victoria’s riflebird (Ptiloris victoriae) also known as duwuduwu to the local Aboriginal people, is a bird-of-paradise endemic to the Atherton Tableland region of northeastern Queensland, Australia where it resides year-round.

As well as insects, they eat fruits from the trees, some which they peel by holding the fruit with one foot and removing the skin with their bill.
