Butterfly gets leg stuck in flower in epic slow motion footage

Published July 23, 2019 422 Plays

Rumble / Wild Wildlife โ€” This butterfly enjoys the nectar from a lavender plant, but when it attempts to fly off to another flower it gets its leg caught. Fortunately it is able to free itself by using some wing power. So much cooler in slow motion!

    Wow, that is some footage. Never seen anything like it. I do like my macro photography, but this is something else. Love it!

      Thanks! Yes, you almost want to help, but with my strong hands I'm afraid that would have made it even worseโ€ฆ ;-)

    You could do a whole channel with this theme. Itโ€™s so beautiful and peaceful. I could see it running in nursing homes or waiting rooms. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
