With almost a million views to date, this clip of an adult male Anna’s Hummingbird will add some color to your day literally. There are no illusions, video edits or any Photoshop done here — this is nothing but the beautiful bird’s natural state. These amazing creatures look more like flying jewelry with those perfect, iridescent feathers that change color depending on the light. Take note that one of the identifying characteristics differentiating the male species from the female is that even though they both have the same iridescent crimson red gorgets (the patch of feathers on their throat), the former looks way more stunning than the latter and they’re much bigger too.
They may be small (about 3.9 to 4.3 in) but they’re HUGE in leaving jaw-dropping impressions. This can stop anyone in their tracks and boy, it’s so easy to get mesmerized.
P.S. The next time you find yourself outdoors, you might wanna look out for these hummingbirds.
