Thursday Challenge—"fast"

I found this little hummingbird near a feeder
in Mindo, in the cloud forest of Ecuador.
When it's hovering like this, its wings can beat
 from 50 to possibly even 200 times per second!

  1. It's very impressive you even could snap it's picture as they are very fast indeed! Well done!

  2. In dutch: kolibri. Nice bird.

  3. Gosh, that's exquisite, dear Alexa. I'd love to see a hummingbird 'for real'.
