Bees, Butterflies, and Other Flying Things

The videos in this section also show flight in slow motion (at one-fourth real-time speed). Thus, the action of a 60-second video actually takes place in only 15 seconds.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Skipper Sipping

A speckled skipper
Unfurling its proboscis  
Seeking sweet nectar.


Delicate but strong
Sipping nectar from blossoms
Fuel for migration.


A flower in bloom
Come share the sweetness with me—
A table for two.
