Xfinity motion sensor camera picked this up on 09/25/18 at 7:29pm. I made no edits other than removing a few seconds before and after the clip. No one present in the gated area at the time.



We have our theories, but would like to hear yours.

Insect.

Insect attracted to the light... frame rate of camera also affects what you are seeing..... now grow up


Kidding..

Moth or humming bird? Or hummingbird moth! Just got into an argument about that critter last night.

My first thought was spider, but if those are legs, I count six and he's ascending quickly without using them, then that weird swooping bit at the end.

Second thought was moth, but no flapping wings and there isn't a light next to the camera for it to be attracted to the best I can tell.

Insect explains the weight and the jerky movements, but I've gotta say I'm impressed but that crazy horizontal flip it does as if it knew it was on camera.

Although it's dark in this corner of the house, looks like security cameras do use infrared which does affect insects. This could explain the sentient "hello!" effect from the visitor.

How Do Night Vision Cameras Work?

Can Moths see Infrared?

Although I don't believe in fairies and such, I do believe in insects...I just don't believe I can adequately explain what insect this would be.

We do rarely get humming birds, but this looks smaller and with more jolting movement rather than abrupt starts and stops. Moth is a good candidate I think, though the wing flapping seems to be missing. I should have at least one wing shape change here somewhere even for low resolution, unless it's a helicopter timing effect where the shutter speed synchronizes with movement.

Hummingbird moth would be a cryptozoology discovery indeed!

The capture of any wing motion would be up to the refresh of the camera ,the monitor . and/or the ambient light.

Careful. It might touch you inappropriately.

I agree with insect though. Erratic movement is a clue....

True, Fairies have much smoother transitional vectoring and spritely turns are performed in a banking motion. So I shouldn't start knocking my own teeth out for extra cash just yet?

Most likely a beetle of some sort.
Or a fairy.
Maybe a tiny interstellar space-craft.

You got it. You can still knock those teeth out though. It's good practice. They grow back.

Beetle is a great call, can't see the wing movement on those.

Tiny interstellar space-craft would account for the zero-point field inertia maneuvers. Technically, it is still an Unidentified Flying Object.

Absolutely a spider it’s a perfect spider silhouette. It’s back legs are together.

Fun find, thanks for sharing. No doubt, it's likely an insect but that shape is very fairy looking. It's pretty opaque, so beetle or more solid insect, as mentioned, may not be far off.

I was wondering if it was the "ballooning" technique I've heard about. Never seen it in person, but fascinating in this video:

New phrase it is then, "Fairy God Beetle"

Neat bug. The crypto forum is a real ho-hum, "marvel at the mundane or this poorly executed hoax" sort of place these days. I could have stayed off ATS another eight years without missing anything.
