Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
At the first light of dawn over the middle desert, the black scarab-beetles come out of the sand and scurry up the face of the dunes to pray. Standing in line after endless line along ridge and crest they face the rising sun and bow, as if in the prostration of obeisance, lifting their hindquarters to the warmth, gathering the morning dew into droplets of water that roll down the hard shell into the waiting mouth.” – Prologue, Master of the Jinn: A Sufi Novel
They were not a figment of my imagination. Here is the water harvesting Darkling Beetle (family Tenebrionidae) of the Namib desert.
