A S-l-o-o-w Hummers Post . . . .

Probably all phones do, but my Note II takes both fast-motion and slow-motion videos.  

Fast-motion is not very useful for filming hummingbirds, but slow-motion is.

Mind you, this is not a Photron SA2 camera (make sure you switch to the 48op).

. . . or even a Phantom HD . . .

But, it’s still neat . . . once again, these are unedited videos of my feeders shot in slow-mo (see? I got the lingo down pat!)

The action is slowed down to 1/8 of normal speed; not enough to make the wings visible, but enough to see what they are doing during their battles.

Again, play in HD for the best results.  These videos are a little longer than yesterday, so if you are the impatient sort, you’ll miss interesting interaction between the hummers.

Hope it’s entertaining to see what I do these evenings.


Please, if you are considering bestowing me some recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline nominations whereby one blogger bestows an award onto another blogger, or group of bloggers.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I would much prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would actually mean something to me.

Should you still nominate me, I will strongly suspect you pulled my name at random, and that you are not, in fact, a reader of my blog.  If you wish to know more, please read below.
