Capturing the Elegance and Grace of Hummingbirds

Hummingbird wings beat incredibly fast, up to 200 times per second in some species, and are the only birds that can fly backward.

Hummingbirds are the smallest birds in the world and have feathers that reflect light creating iridescent colors that change.

Hummingbirds have the highest metabolic rate of any vertebrate, consuming up to half their body weight in nectar and small insects every day.

Hummingbirds play a crucial role in plant pollination, especially important pollinators for certain tropical plants.
