Once you see insects flying in slow motion, you’ll never be able to look at them the same way again.

The YouTube channel Ant Lab is a great source for scientific videos. Run by a lab at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and North Carolina State University, Ant Lab works hard to deliver educational content that’s also fun – with extra emphasis on the “fun.”

Their most popular video to date with over 3 million views is a great example. With Dr. Adrian Smith as the host, viewers are shown a variety of bugs in slow motion as they take off! You may notice several things you wouldn’t at regular speed… like how inelegant some of them are!

Watch these insects embark on their journeys in the video below, and don’t forget to share this mesmerizing story.
