Hi everyone! i'm emin yogurtcuoglu, also known as the @birddetective
and take over @wildlifeplanet
account today and here is my last but not least, my favourite post.;)
mega shot of a most wanted bird. the male bee hummingbird! he has a special regal honor all its own. it is considered to be the smallest bird in the entire world. yes, that’s right; i did say the entire world. even though we know that almost all hummingbirds are tiny (there are some exceptions), to be the smallest bird in the world does deserve the honor and fame it has been given. as you may have guessed, these birds are comparable in size to the bumblebee. females are a mere 6.1 cm long and weigh approximately 2.6 grams. males are even smaller. they only grow to be 5.51 cm long weighing about 1.95 grams, yes less than a dime and this bird is not easy to photograph. usually they stay up in the trees. males only show this color in this angle which means you have to stand above him and he has to look directly at you. one in a million chance in my life, i felt extremely lucky to have him perched just a meter away from me and posed like this in . they are endemic to cuba.
