Mysteries of the unseen world

“What is the intersection between technology, art and science?” filmmaker Louis Schwartzberg asks. Curiosity and wonder. Combining time lapses, high speed cameras, and microscopes, Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space in his latest project titled “Mysteries of the Unseen World.”

Friends and GMG readers share the most beautiful treasures, including the following film, sent in by Mary Weissbaum. Mary writes, “The hummingbird doing rolls chasing a bug is neat! Watch closely and check out the baby bat under its mama (@ ~2 min, 38 sec). Unreal !! If you never knew what goes on in the garden when you aren’t paying attention, watch this – some of the finest filmography you will ever see.” Thank you Mary!

I have posted this video before and think it is worth seeing again, and again!
