These videos are something else. Flight suddenly appears quite the effort. Of the video below, Judge and Philosopher Bas Haring said:
"My favourite was the seemingly peaceable film showing a group of birds foraging. Thanks to the high-speed camera work, you also see the harsh reality of the ongoing struggle between these so-called sweet birds."Watch how they use their beaks as weapons.
Filmed by Liset Karman and Cees Keyer.
I also like this one. It's a little dark. Watch how the tit suspends itself in mid-air, as if it's taking a rest and re-orienting before the next flap. All practically invisible at speeds humans live in.
Filmed by Remco Brand and Ansa Fiaz.
W/ my adolescent-boy sense of humor, I have to laugh at the title of the second video. How puerile of me!
But they are very cool videos. I love the slo-mo of flight--fascinating!
Did you see that dove in the second one poke its head around? LOL!
Cool! These are great reference videos.
Claudia, that neck-stretch! I watched it again (and again and again). And in the first video (after I stopped gawking over the battle and hoping that little foot wasn't forever stuck to the feeder) I paid attention to the surroundings. Everyone kept eating! That one that came into view on the bottom right as the feeder turned, munching away, watching the brawl like it was a TV wrestling match.
