I would imagine that if I saw these moths somehow interpreted as a dance costume for the stage, that if they were embodied so exactly, to represent these moths in their every firework detail, I would say, “that’s too extravagant! this designer has gone overboard! nothing in nature is this ostentatious.” But zooming in on the micro here shows that nature can really go for it.

Filmed at 600 frames per second, and filmed against a gently purple background with dreamy art-film music lilting in the background, this little film is a tiny Wes Anderson world: quirky and sincere, a little dip into quiet magic.

It’s part of a bigger YouTube Project called Ant Lab, and is the channel of the Evolutionary Biology & Behavior Research Lab at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences & North Carolina State University.

It’s headed and nararated by Dr. Adrian Smith, who makes most of these charming videos.

“Who’s day isn’t gonna be better after watching a pink and yellow Rosy Maple Moth fly in super-slow motion?”
