Bird’s Wings Get Perfectly Synced With Camera’s Frame Rate And It Will Mess With Your Brain

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.
