Divine creatures from the Old Testament, associated with the Cherubim, and later taken to be angels. The root of Seraphim comes either from the Hebrew verb saraph ('to burn') or the Hebrew noun saraph (a fiery, flying serpent). Because the term appears several times with reference to the serpents encountered in the wilderness (Num. 21.8, Deut. 8.15; Isa. 14.29; 30.6), it has often been understood to refer to "fiery serpents." From this it has also often been proposed that the seraphim were serpentine in form and in some sense "fiery" creatures or associated with fire.

Also, the thing about the "rods", I myself highly doubt it's an insects wings flapping too fast, there are cameras out there with intense shutter speeds, like 1/8000th of a second, I dont know of any insect whos wings meet this speed.

Depending on how the camera takes it's images, i'd say it's caught the bird in two movements across one frame which is why you can de-interlace it between both.
