Hand feeding a wild hummingbird

From Mark S., "After months of patience and subtle exposure, the juvenile hummingbirds finally trust Annette and I enough to sit on our fingers! So exciting! Up to four juvenile ruby-throated hummingbirds have been hanging around my feeder all day long. They let me get so close that I can actually take handheld stills of them at manual focus with an 18-55mm lens. This inspired me to capture videos of the birds at varying speeds. A hummingbird can flap its wings at 40-80 times per second. The camera records in real time at 30 frames per second. In the video you will see one male and one female. The plumage on the male appears to be speckled because its plumage has not yet matured. Such a remarkable creature!" Captured with the Macropod by Macroscopic Solutions.
