DAVID’S comment: Amazing how that tiny brain computes the calculus of baring in on a snack. I would put this in the category of another saltation. I can't imagine the insect learning tis stepwise. It would have stayed very hungry.

DAVID: I might add another comment: How did that very complex compound eye develop? Not stepwise either. It requires a designer.

I hadn’t intended to comment on this, as my comments have become just as repetitive as your own, but I wouldn’t want you to think that these wonderful articles go unread. Firstly, I don’t have a problem with the idea that generations of tiny brains can improve on the skills of the original tiny brains, and that the compound eye might have started out from simpler forms and improved once the cell communities had realized that there were advantages to having multiple fields of vision. But my main concern is the usual one: why on Earth would your God have specially designed the strategy and the organ when all he really wanted to do was create humans? See the “goldylocks” and “asteroid” threads for the implications.
