A Mesmerizing Look at Hummingbirds in Flight
MASTERS OF FLIGHT
When it comes to aerodynamics, hummingbirds are fine‑tuned machines.
VIDEOS BY ANAND VARMA
Using a high-speed, high-resolution camera, photographer Anand Varma captures what the naked eye can’t see—the breathtaking maneuvers of a hummingbird in flight. Varma teamed up with scientists studying the biology of hummingbirds to reveal the secrets behind these captivating creatures.
An Anna’s hummingbird drinks artificial nectar from a glass vessel. The bird’s forked tongue makes a sipping motion up to 15 times a second.
Letting hummingbirds loose in wind tunnels allows researchers to probe the mechanics of flight at airspeeds of up to 35 miles an hour. A fog of water vapor makes the wind movement visible.
The wings of some species flap up to a hundred times per second.
A hummingbird shakes off rain the same way a wet dog does, with an oscillation of its head and body.
The smallest hummingbird weighs in at only 1.8 grams, which is less than the weight of a penny. The largest hummingbird tips the scales at around 20 grams.
Hummingbirds are the only birds that can hover in still air for 30 seconds or more.
Even shows the solar flares! Filmed through a telescope.

Mary Did You Know? | Acapella | The Young Messiah
Singer Multiplies His Voice 50 Times to Bring You the Most Magical Version of the “Circle of Life” You’ll Ever Hear: Watch!
Sam Robson…is an a capella genius who just so happened to multiply himself 50 times in order to bring to you what is most likely the best version of The Lion King‘s “Circle of Life” that you will ever hear. …
Using only his voice, body and percussion, Robson masterfully brings to you the childhood classic with the same passion you’ve come to know and love, but somehow makes it better.
“I’m really excited to bring you my latest project,” he writes beneath his YouTube video. “As a kid I remember seeing the Lion King and being blown away by it, many years later I had the idea to arrange Circle of Life but bailed, due to it’s challenging nature. However 5 years on from my previous idea I decided to give it one more push, and I’m really happy that I did.” …
The outcome is something to behold, as Robson uses 50 different versions of his voice, often all at the same time. …
“Finally I present to you my latest multitrack, with as many as 50 voices at one time I have realised my vision of how I wanted this to sound like and it’s all thanks to the people that have supported me musically,” he adds.
Like the original, Robson’s version starts out fairly low key and ultimately culminates in an impassioned belting of the lyrics. Watch the video…to see him perform in all of his glory. (entire article)

From the day we arrive on the planet
And, blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round
It’s the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life
