Louie Schwartzberg ‘s Nature Footage Captures The Rarely Seen Acrobatics Of A Hummingbird (VIDEO)
When people see the work of award-winning filmmaker and photographer Louie Schwartzberg, they tend to have one common response: “Oh, my God.”

For more than three decades, Schwartzberg has been using time lapse and slow motion to capture nature’s vast expanses and tiniest details, allowing people to see the unseen. Flowers move and unfold to bloom within minutes, caterpillars transform elegantly within their cocoons and hummingbirds twirl through the air with ease.

Hummingbirds, in particular, have been an exciting subject of Schwartzberg’s work, as he tells Oprah on an episode of “Super Soul Sunday.”

“They’re incredible,” he says. “They’re so territorial! They’re feisty.”

“I didn’t know that,” Oprah says.

That’s not the only surprising thing about these tiny creatures. Schwartzberg tells Oprah that their wings beat at 200 times per second, but they don’t just float idly. They can also twist and turn their bodies as if dancing across the air.

To show these movements, Schwartzberg shares footage of a hummingbird moving 16 times slower than normal speed. “Look at this acrobatic move,” he says, as the video plays. “We don’t see that with the naked eye.”

Watch the video above to see them in action.

More of Louie Schwartzberg’s interview airs on “Super Soul Sunday” this Sunday, April 6, at 11 a.m. ET on OWN. The episode also live streams on Oprah.com and Facebook.com/supersoulsunday.
