You might’ve seen the classic balloon-to-face slow motion video before, but have you seen ones for a slow motion video of a bee’s flapping wings? The variety through the compilation is one reason why the video has gone viral (8+ million hits).
We understand that often, perspective means everything, even visually. What’s intriguing about these slow motion videos is that we get to see life through a perspective that we cannot ourselves achieve – viewing things at such a speed that we can grasp, for instance, the lines on a bee’s wings while flapping or the ripples of a balloon. Do you think that bees see things in this way (in slow motion)?
