Wasps In Super Slow Motion Are 4,700 FPS Of Freaky

It's a general rule that everything is better in slow motion, but at 4700 frames a second, wasps just go from "creepy" to "still creepy". The footage you see here is actually a .8 second clip by cinematographer Alan Teitel that's been slowed down over 100 times.

You can see the individual flapping of each insectoid wing as the little suckers ferry droplets of water back to their nest to keep it cool. I'm sure it must take a really obscene amount of work to keep a 7m wasp nest cool. I don't think any of us want to see that, in slow motion or otherwise. [The Awesomer via Laughing Squid]
