Show and Tell

immature female rufous hummingbird

All you gotta do is wear the telephoto lens there on your nose

This here is an immature female rufous hummingbird. (At least I think so.) I love close-ups that show the detail of the feathers; they’re always more spectacular than I could imagine. Who in the world designs these things? Oh, right.

While we’re on the topic, here’s an old FarrFeed video from 2009 you need to see. This five-second clip is slowed down to forty seconds. The resulting sounds you hear, all hummingbird calls and chirps, are one hundred percent natural! I didn’t know there was any audio at all until I slowed the video down.

Amazing, isn’t it? Like a freaking jungle!
