We’ve been watching the hummingbirds all week here at the YMCA of the Rockies and I kept thinking I’d like to get my tripod set up and take a slow-motion video of a hummingbird. I never did get the tripod out, but when we noticed a hummingbird sipping the flowers again this evening, I pulled the camera out and tried to take the video without the tripod. It was smoother than I thought it would turn out and is a fun thing to watch.
Another hummingbird shows up if you watch it long enough. Fascinating. I think this one is a female and the newcomer is a male (judging by its extra colors). It may have been trying to impress her. That’s my guess.
