Very cool, some scenes could be designated as insect ballet:

I really want one of those cameras, sure beats the high speed mode of my AW1!

I saw these. The odd tumbling-while-flying was something I'd poorly observed in real time before, but not with the clarity presented here in these videos.  Well worth viewing, IMO.

Fun video, but why such poor light resulting in underexpose and uneven back gruond?
