BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
This private sanctuary is now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu).

Coral bathing slowly
Here's a different clip of Coral bathing in water droplets from a garden hose spray. Here the clip was "overcranked' - shot at double speed, so when played back at normal speed the overall effect is 2X slo-mo, but with no jerkiness. She tries various leaves, and sort of snuggles into the moisture, sometimes half-flying at the same time.
