With all respect, you are not a technical expert in optics or
video. Rods are nothing but flying insects that are elongated by
the image latency effect of electronic image sensors.

The "wings" are, in fact, wings. The sinusoidal form they take
along the Rod is simply the wing beating. The reflected sunlight
is, in fact, reflected sunlight.

Show any of the video of the 'rods' to any technical expert at
any of the companies that make video cameras and they will
instantly tell you what you are seeing, and roll on the floor
laughing if you tell them about 'rods'.

There's a very good reason that no one started seeing Rods
until people started using video cameras. The effect is an
artifact of electronic imaging and does not show up on film.

Someone who wanted to prove this could go to one of the places
where people are shooting video of Rods with a video camera
and quality 16 mm film camera and shoot side by side examples.
The video would show Rods, the film would show bugs.
