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 (

Getting Closer to Fred

Yesterday I piloted the drone quite close to Fred, and you can see his ruby-throat as he takes off from his favorite perch. My repeated drone visits don't seem to bother him too much because he keeps coming back. The 2-second movie is in 8x slo-mo, and since the camera films at 30 fps,  fast movement (and Fred is accelerating fast at take-off) tends to break up when replayed very slowly. Unfortunately on the Spark the camera settings are hard-wired.
