Green-throated Carib Hummingbird - Travel Photos in Martinique


Here, in the center of the image, a Green-throated Carib (Eulampis holosericeus).

The flight of the hummingbird is truly unique, resembling that of insects more than other birds.

Thus, the speed of its wing beats is 80 beats per second for normal flight and can reach up to 200 beats per second at peak... a record!
