SOPHISTICATED TECHNOLOGY IN OUR HANDS - INSECT BARCODE

I have a simple consumer model camera - but when I went outside tonight I saw bugs in the streetlight and decided to take their portraits.   The results I find spectacular.  Each insect is identifiable by its alternating or simultaneous wing beats.   And by the amplitude and frequency of its wing beats per distance traveled.  The street light is the metronome...

There is real beauty and knowledge banging against the mercury vapor...and we can see it, can't we?

every insect is identifiable in 60 cycle street light
