This is a video of Youtuber Ant Lab’s quest to capture different insects taking flight in 3,200 frames/second ultra-slow motion. Featured in the video are eleven different species of insects spanning five different taxonomic orders. Timestamps while I eat the Totino’s Pizza Rolls I didn’t finish last night for breakfast
Because everybody needs a hobby, and some of those hobbies are a little more…eccentric than others, this is a video from insect enthusiast and one of the UK’s largest breeders (of insects) Adrian Kozakiewicz of some of his praying mantis species hanging out in a miniature living room watching/attacking butterflies
These are the almost certainly unlicensed ‘Very Long Pikachu Insect Plushes’ available from Chinese online retailer AliExpress.
