The animated visualizations of Eleanore Lutz, Via fastcodesign
In her latest visualization, Lutz decided to visualize the flight patterns of various winged animals. Inspired by her work at an insect lab as an undergrad, Lutz examines five slow-motion videos of a bat, dragonfly, Canada goose, hummingbird, and hawk moth. She then tracked the path of the articulated points on each creature’s wings to reveal the invisible path each wing beat traces… in the case of the hummingbird, as much as 200 times per second.
