Slow-motion ladybugs look like they can’t fly before they do

Slow-motion ladybugs! Watch the incredible process of ladybugs unfolding their wings out from under their spotted elytra, the spotted protective wing-cases that they’re known for. This video was recorded in slow-motion (3000 frames per second) by Rainer Bergomaz of PCO Imaging.

From the archives: a ladybug swarm + more slow motion.
