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.

100 FLAPS/SEC

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.

GRAMS
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.

SECONDS
Hummingbirds are the only birds that can hover in still air for 30 seconds or more.

Eclipse 2017: Through the Eyes of NASA

Published on Aug 24, 2017

During the eclipse, 14 states across the U.S. were in the path of totality and experienced more than two minutes of darkness in the middle of the day – with a partial eclipse viewable all across North America. The broadcast – Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA – covered locations along the path of totality, from Oregon to South Carolina including public reactions from all ages. The eclipse’s long path over land provided a unique opportunity to study the Sun, Earth, Moon and their interaction.

(video) Sam Robson: ‘Mary Did You Know?’ – SOLO 9-PART Acapella w/ ‘The Young Messiah’ Film Excerpts

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you

Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God

Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know

The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb

Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I am

Mary did you know?

(video) Sam Robson: The Lion King – ‘Circle of Life’ SOLO, UP-TO-50 PART Acapella/Percussion Arrangement!

Singer Multiplies His Voice 50 Times to Bring You the Most Magical Version of the “Circle of Life” You’ll Ever Hear: Watch!

Sam Robsonis 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)

Lyrics:
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
