May 17, 2013

Crystal-clear high-speed video reveals the hidden details of animals in motion.

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.
