This video is so cool you really must see it.
It's a behind-the-scenes look at the making of PBS's NATURE show Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air. In it the producer describes how they filmed these tiny birds and what they learned.
Bird watchers and photographers can relate to their experience, how hard it was to capture what they were looking for and how rewarding it was when they did. I felt a kinship when the team spent days trying to get a split-second video of a hummingbird catching an insect.
And what an expensive video endeavour! You'll be amazed by NATURE's cameras and lenses.
So click on the video and enjoy. You'll be dazzled. I guarantee it!

p.s. If you didn't see Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air when it premiered last January 10th on PBS's NATURE or this month when WQED re-broadcast it during our year-end fund-raising effort, you can view its entire 50 minutes online here.
