Hummingbirds – slow motion videos give us a chance to see what hummingbirds are really doing. Hummingbirds often move and interact too quickly for us to see.
Hummingbirds – Slow Motion
This 22 second slow motion video shows:
- a hummingbird hovering
- one hummingbird flying backwards while being chased by another, and
- a hummingbird stopping and turning in place in midair
One second in real life takes 10 seconds to watch. The video was recorded at 300 frames per second but it plays back at 30 frames per second. The action in this 22 second video took about 2 seconds in real time.
Finally, we can see what the birds are doing.
This video is from Hover: Hummingbirds in the United States.
We will add more videos to this page over time.
