Most people who look at my hummingbirds photos might get the idea I am literally swimming in them . . . and they would be right. I currently refill some of the feeders twice a day.
This morning I went out for about 10 minutes, and shot a few videos using my Samsung Note II.
I leaned on the railing to stabilize the phone, and waited . . . just as a point of reference, the phone is about 6 inches from the closest edge of the feeder (the second video says 4-5 inches, but I went out to measure). You should watch this in 1080p (probably need to go to YouTube) and full screen to get the best picture. You can choose the quality by clicking the little sprocket on the lower right of the YouTube window.
If you click the little sprocket, YouTube also gives you the option to watch at half or a quarter speed. Pretty neat, actually.
The phone also has a slow motion mode. Unfortunately, it only shoots at 720×480, so the following video quality is not as good as slowing down the 1080p version.
The following is shot at 1/8th speed. If you don’t want to watch the whole thing (5 whole minutes!) you should at least watch the last half minute or so.
Also, for them who did not find the hummingbird in the last post . . .
Once you see it, it’s hard to miss.
That’s it . . . a short post for once, but still requiring 10 minutes or so to go through everything.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I 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 mean something to me.
