The ladybug images are scaled, color corrected and ordered by similarity — with computational algorithms that are used in face recognition software — to animate the pattern on their backs. Although idiomatic individuals are usually used to represent a species (e.g. Adoburn Guide), seeing the range and diversity within the category has historically been underrepresented. “ – [via] Link.
