One minute to appreciate people who share beautiful images like this on wikimedia commons for those of us with no green to photograph, and a deep desire to see some...
... and one minute to appreciate a little nature inspired "magic" brought to life with a piece of paper, a paperclip, and a classic trick.
From How Stuff Works:
1. Cut a strip of paper.
2. Cut halfway down the length of the paper.
3. Fold the wings in opposite directions
4. Attach a paper clip to the bottom of your gyrocopter.
5. Drop from a high place and watch it spin and fly! Try experimenting with different sizes, longer wings, and more paperclips. What happens?
