And the Oscar goes to...Hummingbird Video


This little Hummingbird is pretty famous. He stars in one of my favorite photos from last year's Costa Rica trip. And he even has two humble videos filmed in his honor. They're not going to win any Oscar's. But they are pretty cute. Mr. Hummer pretty much just sits on the wire and chirps. So I wouldn't exactly describe this as an action movie. It's more like a discovery channel reject. See for yourself. P.S. Turn up your volumes!

So cute. I don't think Ive ever seen a hummingbird sit for so long. I just love Costa Rica. Where was this in Costa Rica?

The audio is pretty good. It must've been so nice to hear all the wildlife chirping away.

I love the photograph! Hoping to frame it this weekend. Thanks again!

I never seen a hummingbird sit still before, either. Beautiful.

Adorable, Sharon. I love hummers, I have planted all kinds of hummingbird enticements, and last year I got some great shots but they didn't stay long, they moved on to more exotic climes, I guess.

Hummingbirds are not easy to film. They are so small and fast. Great shots.

I cannot see your video!
But because I know how everything in your world looks like magic to me, and is happy, I will close my eyes and IMAGINE!
Yes,,,, I can see them- they are beautiful, all I needed to do was close my eyes and wish and I entered into your world.
love

Aw, he is a cute little fellow. The hummers here never stay in one place that long. I loved the video.
