Experimente zum Flug des Taubenschwänzchens

Sigurd Heinig
This diurnal hawksbill moth sucks nectar from blossoms while hovering. In experiments, it can be easily trained to go artificial blossoms with honey water. Finely ground particles of balsa wood are swept along in the air current and mark atmospheric vortices and acceleration. High-speed photography with 2500 and 5000 frames per second.
