Amazing Video of Pollinators

I have fallen a little behind in responding to questions, but hopefully, I’ll start catching up in the next few days, but I wanted to share some amazing slow motion, time-lapse and close-up video of pollinators by filmmaker Louis Schwartzberg.

He talks for about three minutes about why he films flowers and their pollinators, but if you want to skip ahead to the actual video, go to 3:00. My favorite part is the incredible spiral aerial acrobatics of a hummingbird chasing an insect at about 3:50. Also, in connection with recent butterfly questions, just after 6:00 there is time-lapse video of a monarch butterfly coming out of its chrysalis and then video of two mating monarchs flying together.

  1. My favorite was the 4 flies, hovering over a flower. I don’t know why, but that just struck me. The clip includes some incredible sequences that I would never get to see without Louie’s help. Thanks for sharing it!
