Praying Mantis. The elongated section that is clearly the front-end of what direction it's flying; is too long to be a moth.

And, Bats love eating mantis.

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


Yup. Micro Aliens.
Trying to causally fit in as an Earth fairy or beetle.

If I had to guess, based on the shape, I would say it is a large moth. It seems to sharp and well defined to me, I am guessing photoshop..wish it was a fairy.


I have no photoshop skills, at least not since college a few decades ago, but maybe Xfinity is doing something in their home security control room to mess with me. That would be a fun conspiracy, yes?

Moth is a good candidate I think, though the wing flapping seems to be missing.


Its either a moth or mosquito.

What frame rate does the camera capture?

Flapping of wings will be detectable if its a very high frame rate.




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.

Could be, though I'm having a hard time making out the mantis shape in the video. Speaking of, Mantis style in Kung Fu was difficult for me, I preferred snake.

Good question & point, I wasn't able to find many details about the camera hardware. It does has some neat features like some motion tracking and live zoom. If I had to guess, it looks around 30fps to me so definitely not a good device for online gaming. It would've been nice to see the flapping beetle...er...fairy wings.

For this video and case i really cant tell if its really good CGI/VFX but i do know if this was VFX it shouldn't have being to hard to do in Nuke/AE. Maybe it was VFX still.

If it's CGI, then XFinity is playing a prank on me. I don't know what Nuke/AE is but sounds like a post-apocalyptic sci-fi. I haven't the skills to edit video other than snip the beginning and end on my phone. Xfinity makes it easy to download from them, just one click.
