Faster than a speeding camera shutter? I think not...

Here's some pretty cool video of hummingbirds flying.

I remember when I lived in Arizona and walking to the bus stop one day we found a hummingbird nest with a tiny little egg shell in it (barely larger than a tic tac). They're really wonderful birds to watch, with such unique adaptations, such as their long skinny tongues, and the absolutely fantastic way they've managed to flap their wings to stay in one spot in the air.
