High-Speed video: Butterflies dancing

Butterfly icon

The sequence below was shot in the butterfly house of the Pacific Science Center in Seattle in 2010.

Filmed at 500 fps. This video consists of about 730 frames, which means the whole sequence took less than 1-½ seconds in real time. Shot with a Phantom Miro 4 color high-speed camera, which was graciously loaned to the Daniel Lab by its manufacturer, Vision Research.
