Video of the Day: how a hummingbird dries off

Hummingbirds are quite remarkable little creatures. In the video below, you'll see how a hummingbird shakes water from its body to get dry. According to the BBC, "The delicate bird shakes its head with such acceleration that it can reach a g-force of 34 (Formula 1 racing cars typically reach less than 6g). This mid-air manoeuvre takes just 0.1 seconds and removes almost all of the water droplets from its feathers."
