Mass flight of Zodiac Moths [Alcides zodiac]
Filmed using my iPhone on June 1, 2011 at Yarrabah. Zodiac Moths were nestled in huge numbers in the pine plantation along Bukki Road; whilst quietly walking along the track they took fright - and the sky filled with thousands of silhouettes and iridescence. No effects have been used in this filming - and it is filmed in real time. Occasionally the iPhone appeared to struggle with correctly exposing the silhouettes - and the moths appear almost translucent - this is not an overlay.
