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!)

Tthe 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, if the little HD appears on the upper right corner of the video frame, click on it for 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.
