Hey y'all! Welcome the newest addition to my #MastoArtGallery by @ziphi! This beautiful hummingbird has iridescent gold & other beautiful colors with every realistic aspect I could imagine—so much so, this piece inspired me to put up a feeder 4 stories in the air bc a friend said they'd still find it if you've seen them near. Well, 2 weeks later, I finally caught my new friend & camped out for this pic of art and life.
#BuySomeArt What's original hanging on your wall? #Art
I have done it! I caught this lil one coming in HOT 🔥, letting the tower know & landing gear, out! & now that I've had a closer [slower] look, evidently this is a 'rare' for CA Mexican violetear (Colibri thalassinus)!? You can hear their wings flutter coming in and their ADORABLE sound as well as eating! They come back about once an hour. Filmed via iPhone XS at 1080p 240fps slo-mo & slightly overexposed to bring out their blues & greens. #MastoArt #CreativeToots
@Curator Incredible capture!
@Curator Ahhh! The little tongue!
@Curator What a perfect time of day too, the colours of the environment are wonderful.
@Curator Wonderful! (it’s also impressive what’s possible with smartphones today)
Aaaah! Tiny birb! Lovely green.
@Curator You trusted the thing attached to the window :D
@yulran haha yea, there’s a timelapse in HA on my share.tube & it held for over 10 hours on that glass door so i have a bit of trust now. I did make a catch then in case it fell while i was gone but it didnt so didnt make it this time.
@Curator very cool, the slowed sound makes it extra trippy.
@JoeCallanan i agree! There’s another birb video on my share.tube & it was the first time i heard the sound so slow. I wondered how it would be captured here & it is trippy & so amazing. I had to turn up the volume on my bt speaker to really enjoy it. I will try to lost this clip in its real-time if i can figure it out
@Curator ahhh this is incredible!! I love the 'landing gear' and the little tongue!
@tatterberry werent their lil streamlined body and feet coming out adorbs? I couldn’t resist bc in slow mo it def looked like landing gear coming dien ftom a helicopter or plane. They’re always so fast you never see their feet, letalone their wings, tongue, etc.
@Curator Absolutely adorable! It really did look like that, haha. And yes! Super interesting to be able to see all that detail, they're such zippy little things at normal speed :D
@Curator THAT'S AWESOME! Look at that cutie and darn it too cold in Colorado for these cutie-patooties!
@Curator This is so cool!
@Curator Oh wow! That's amazing!
@ziphi all bc of your beautiful art! I was wanting more up close!
It's beautiful. Is it safe for them to eat that? I mean, we know it's an industrialized product 🤔
@maperal it’s just organic sugar water & i boiled everything so just the same as their necrar per online stuff
It's homemade! 😁 well, some dessert won't hurt 😉
@maperal omgosh i just noticed your profile pic! 😍
I looked at this society http://www.hummingbirdsociety.org/feeding-hummingbirds/ and this one https://www.audubon.org/news/hummingbird-feeding-faqs
Both say pure white cane sugar is fine for them. No trace of brown (mollasses) as the iron is poison to them. Never honey. No colouring.
Leaving them up will NOT delay their migration and may help stragglers.
That's all I learned! :-)
@Curator that is so cool :-)
