Clips of recent hummingbird activity from a variety of angle, in wind, sun, and rain, both in slow motion and at normal speed.
The first bit (at 0:04) was taken while I was up on an extension ladder installing gutter screens.
At 0:09, you can see the female repeatedly sticking her tongue out.
The affinity with trumpet music seemed natural.
At times, she gulps in half note rhythm.
I love the shot that begins at 1:12.
This female's got great rhythm.
At 1:22, Chet Baker, trumpet player extraordinaire, blows an especially pungent blues note and the bird swings her tail in perfect sync (that's just how I dropped the clip in the timeline--a happy accident, very nice when it happens, especially considering how much work goes into most editing).
At 1:26 the ride cymbal picks up, and her wings seem to flap in response.
At 3:02, bobbing her head to the music (shot in real time).
At 4:08, a tiny rain drop bounces of this male's head.
At 4:25, the male gets to bob his head to the music.
At 5:08, inching along the ring of the feeder, assisted by wings.
At 7:05, it may be difficult to spot the hummingbird, as its green back/wings match the shape and color of the azalea leaves (the bird is just left of center).
