Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air
For now, feast your eyes on this incredible video! The dramatic slow-motion sequences reveal some of these birds' awesomeness.
Because hummingbirds live their lives in fast forward, much of their fascinating world is typically lost to human perception. But using cameras able to capture over 500 images a second, the hummingbirds’ magical world can finally be seen and appreciated. Amazing footage shows these little powerhouses are far more than delicate nectar gatherers — they are also deadly predators. And watch as the birds display their elaborate mating rituals, showing off with nose dives that subject them to over ten G’s of force — enough to cause an experienced fighter pilot to black out!Anyone else tempted to host a viewing party with sugar water on the menu?
