In the past, we've profiled a web cam that takes a rare glimpse inside a bee colony. Now, you can take an up close and personal look at a hummingbird, courtesy of Victoria, B.C. bird photographer Eric Pittman. His real-time film featuring a tiny bird in its nest is creating quite the buzz online, attracting hundreds of viewers each day, along with the potential for high-profile partnerships.
According to Global News, Pittman has been snapping pictures of hummingbirds for some time now.
The first one was named Sweetiebird, and it went on to raise six generations in his backyard.
Filming hummingbirds in real-time is incredibly rare -- in fact, Pittman may be the only person doing it at the moment.
His work has caught the attention of the BBC. The organization hopes he'll help producers shoot a hummingbird next for an upcoming documentary.
