A few shots and a couple slow-mo videos of this Ruby-Throated Hummingbird at one of my feeders last night.
It was starting to get dark, so the lighting and detail isn't the best.
If it would ever stop raining and the sun would come out I'd get some better shots.

2 Videos (5x slow-mo) [They flap 55 times per second, so even slowed down by 5x it still looks quick. lol]

Wow, great pics. Nice vid, too. I also like your homemade ripper claw you have the vid of on your channel, cool.

How'd you like to come around a corner and have one of theses go off on you? :laughing:


That's pretty wild she was able to get so close to them. We get egrets, herons, and cranes all coming here, they never let me creep up on them like that.
