Researcher made a robotic insect, they can perch by using electro-adhesion. The robots are able to perch on surfaces like glass, wood or even a leave.

Robotic Butterfly

A team from the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory developed a 3.2 g Untethered Flapping-Wing Platform for Glight Energetics and Control Experiments.
