There are plenty of videos online showing what helicopters can magically appear to float when their rotors are in sync with a camera’s frame rate. But here’s a new video of something we’ve never seen before: a floating bird.
YouTuber Ginger Beard shared this home security video that captured a bird flying and glancing at the camera. But because the camera’s frame rate is perfectly in sync with the bird’s flapping wings, the wings are only captured while they’re in a single position. It makes the bird appear to magically float in front of the camera without flapping its wings at all.
