Hummingbird


Hummingbirds feed in many small meals, consuming many small invertebrates and up to five times their own body weight in nectar each day. They can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their  wings 12-90 times per second (depending on the species). One such bird pauses to taste the sweet nectar in Latigo Canyon.
