This video, recorded in California in the USA, says about itself:
May 17, 2013
Crystal-clear high-speed video reveals the hidden details of animals in motion. A lumbering scarab beetle turns weightless as it spreads its hidden wings; a hummingbird visits its nest; shorebirds capture prey and swallow it with a quick toss to the back of the throat. Recommended for viewing in high-definition (720p).
Recorded by Andy Johnson, Ben Clock, Shailee Shah and Teresa Pegan on a Macaulay Library student workshop to southern California during March 16–24, 2013.
