Interactive video lesson plan for: Butterfly Takeoff at 2,000 Frames per Second - Smarter Every Day 79

Activity overview:

Who knew such a beautiful thing could occur in less than 100 milliseconds? I shot this free-handed with a Phantom Miro in the Rainforest. More to come! Tweet so friends can enjoy: http://bit.ly/BEUTFLBTTRFLY

The camera we used is the Phantom Miro 320S
The footage we obtained was incredible. I'll demonstrate that in upcoming videos.

Thanks to Rainforest Expeditions for inviting me down, if you'd like to go down to the Amazon Rainforest and see all of this for yourself check them out at http://www.perunature.com

Here's a butterfly post they made:

Gordon had to pay for his flight down to Peru and hasn't made his money back yet.
Please donate something in exchange for his awesome work!

Please share this with your friends! Media outlets please do not post this video on your media forms without proper permission/licensing. I still have not recouped what I spent to travel and make this video, so obviously I'm trying to do that. Feel free to contact me about licensing.

Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!
