Hummingbirds Slowed Down

If you have seen hummingbirds, you have seen speed. If you have ever wondered what they are really doing, you should watch this short video, which is all about the making of a PBS Nature film on the tiny creatures.



You can watch the full PBS episode of Hummingbirds, Magic in the Air here.

Thank you, Auntie Bucksnort, for sending me these links.

I love hummingbirds! That film clip is amazing... it's interesting how technology is involved- like the guy was saying- filming like that wouldn't even have been possible 5 years ago. How cool to see them in slow motion like that! Great post Clair!

Love this !!! We only get a few of these lovely birds visiting our yard. I'm always thrilled when I do.

These little guys always seem other world-ly to me, amazing and beautiful in such a small package.
Thanks for the PBS link too!
