This afternoon a female ruby-throated hummingbird zipped in to carbo-load at our feeder. What luck that the cameras were rolling! While she supped on the sweet, sugary nectar, we were capturing the whole thing in beautiful HD:
Clearly pleased with the concoction, the emerald lass flicks her tongue after every draught. If you blinked, you may have missed her take a shit before splitting.
Thank you, technology, for showing us nature at her most elegant.
