Beavers are amazing creatures. The skill and complexity involved in constructing their dams is incredible.

The construction of a beaver dam is probably just an emergent property of the interactions among individual beavers following simple rules rather than a result of a detailed preconceived plan. I don't think beavers have a blueprint or a mental image of the final dam; their behavior is guided by instincts and a set of rules that lead to the emergent structure.

What do you think about wasp nests? They are pretty perfect.

They have to be to satisfy the zoning regulations that restrict nest size or demand compliance with "Flight Path Safety" standards.
