Slo-Mo flight ...if we could all be so gracefull

...ballistic flight

A Great Tit approaches a birdhouse, lands, leaves again and returns. During this return the flight looks a bit like a ballistic "flying" with wings folded. The sequence was recorded at 1500 frames/s at Full HD with a pco.dimax highspeed camera. It is displayed in 25 frames/s while the scenes in the birdhouse run 4 times faster. In total 4 s have been recorded. Since it was recorded from inside some reflections in the window are unfortunately visible.
