3D construction of a blowfly in flight

There are a set of amazing reconstructions of the flight motion of a blowfly, available on YouTube, which show the workings of the muscles and exoskeleton. It looks like a steam engine. Very cool data visualization--  and a breakthrough in X-Ray technology to obtain the images.
