Spectacular slow motion video of moths in flight

They are very messy flyers; wings and legs all over the place. They are also very fluffy. I wonder if the twinkling things in some of the shots are scales coming off their wings?


Gorgeous! And I say that as a person who is generally grossed out by/afraid of insects.

I always thought that because the signals in their brain (or what passes for a brain) have very short distances to travel, bugs (and small animals) experience time in a very different way than us. Maybe the moth lives in a world that seems as slow as depicted in the video.

I would have had to make the platform a tiny Tokyo skyline.
