Drone Disguised as Hummingbird Captures Incredible Footage #Drones
In the mountains of Mexico, a spy hummingbird goes into the heart of a breathtaking monarch butterfly swarm. Few filmmakers have been able to capture the spectacle this closely.
In a recent video from Nature on PBS, you’ll be able to get super close to resting Monarch Butterflies. As they wait for the temperature to rise, they huddle together to keep warm. Without disturbing any of the butterflies, they’ve managed to take close-up footage of the butterflies. The way they’ve managed to do this is by disguising a drone to look like a Hummingbird. As described in the video, hummingbirds are not a threat to the monarch butterflies, and for that reason they don’t react to it at all.
