Thirsty Wasp brings water to nest in slow motion

These wasps are trying to cool their overheated nest. One brings a droplet of water to assist. Alan Teitel captures it at 4,700 frames per second. A moment of appreciation for nature and a moment of appreciation of technology at the same time: this is 0.8 seconds of real time stretched out into 2m15 seconds of slow motion.
