I was taking pictures of the sunset and these guys were vying for position at the hummingbird feeder. I guess they decided to pose for a quick pic!
There was a nice storm just north of the apartment and it was kicking up the wind which made for great antics and hummingbirds tried to catch a blowing feeder. The storm also provided a dramatic back drop to the video. The first video is 34 minutes at the feeder boiled down to a still long 9 and a half minutes. Stay through at least the first 2 as a pair of Hooded Orioles come for a drink and their golden rod covering is illuminated by the Sun. Of course, I could watch the whole thing over and over for hours and probably will.
The first video was shot with my FlipUltra in 640×480 resolution. The second video (pending) was shot with my FlipUltra HD. 1280×720 resolution. Enjoy!
It’s raining today and chilly by Tucson standards. We even had some sleet mixed in with the rain shower that moved through just before these pictures were taken. Still, a hummingbirds gotta eat!
