Yo! I made a rap song in AutoRap by Smule, and it's awesome. Listen to it here:

amazing species
micro|scene|HD #5: Aerobatic Hummingbird

Amazing chase sequence
"Slow motion excerpt from 'Wings of Life', a documentary about the threats to essential pollinators that produce over a third of the food we eat."

See the full version video ▶ The Beauty of Pollination - Moving Art™

Check out the related TED
Pollination: it's vital to life on Earth, but largely unseen by the human eye. Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg shows us the intricate world of pollen and pollinators with gorgeous high-speed images, inspired by the vanishing of one of nature's primary pollinators, the honeybee.

Extra! Some surprising facts:

● hummingbirds are a diverse family of over 300 species
● they have feet so tiny that they cannot walk on the ground, and find it awkward to shuffle along a perch
● while in flight hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of all animals, to support the rapid beating of their wings
● their heart rate can reach as high as 1,260 beats per minute
● their super fast wing beats use up a lot of energy, so they spend most of the day sitting around resting
● hummingbirds eat nectar for the most part, although they may catch an insect now and then for a protein boost
● they consume more than their own weight in nectar each day, so they must visit hundreds of flowers daily
● hummingbirds are continuously hours away from starving to death, and are able to store just enough energy to survive overnight
● to save energy while they sleep or when food is scarce, many species go into a hibernation-like state (torpor) where their metabolic rate is slowed to 1/15th of its normal rate
● they can fly at speeds exceeding 54 km/h (34 mph)
● they can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12–80 times per second
● they are also the only group of birds able to fly backwards
● to remove rain droplets from their heads, they shake them like a dog, but with such acceleration that it can reach a g-force of 34 (Formula 1 racing cars typically reach less than 6g)
