Video: This is just so cool. I love how the dotted red shells split and then the wings slowly swing out and then begin to flap and the ladybug takes flight like some sophisticated alien space ship that's ready to swarm together. It's also really cool to see this angle of a ladybug taking flight because it's so different than the overview look we typically get.
A ladybug prepares and takes off for flying away. The sequence was recorded by cameraman Rainer Bergomaz from Blue Paw Artists with a pco.dimax HD at 3000 frames/s and 1296 x 720 pixel resolution. The first part is displayed at 250 frames/s and when the ladybug starts to unfold its wings the display speed is reduced to 25 frames/s.
