Flight Styles: The Ways in Which Birds and Butterflies Fly

Butterflies don't just flutter, and birds don't merely flap. They also hover, glide, soar, burst, stoop, and perform a remarkable suite of additional flight styles, all in accordance with their sizes, shapes, and situations. Join John Acorn for an explanation of bird and butterfly flight that will focus on the different "modes" that these animals use while in the air. He promises to go easy on the physics, and also to give you some tips that might enhance your wildlife viewing experience, and encourage you to make more use of that slow-motion setting on your camera or smartphone.
