Because this new “Auto Awesome” animated gif that Google+ automatically created for me has me wondering. (Well, wondering about the clockwise part. I already know that hummingbirds only operate in frantic mode. A laid-back hummingbird means the end really is nigh.)
Anyway, this sequence was a compilation of 5 separate photos sequenced together into an animation.
Because hummingbirds move so quickly, it looks normal to the human eye, instead of a really fast slideshow.
Once the giant pancake of snow-ice finally melts, and spring arrives, along with the hummies, I will report back.
