Flight

NATURE
Super Hummingbirds

 

Speed is their middle name. Their lives are moving faster than the eye can see. They possess natural born super powers that enable them to fly backwards, upside-down and float in mid-air. And for the first time, we see them mate, lay eggs, fight and raise families in intimate detail. They are great athletes, tender mothers, brave in combat and up for any challenge. They are Super Hummingbirds, the smallest and most brilliant birds on earth.

Crowded Skies

 

Explore the wonder and science of one of nature’s greatest innovations – the power of flight. Cutting-edge camera technology and computer-generated graphics help explain airborne animals’ remarkable powers and how they work.

 

Crowded Skies
The sky is a crowded world where mammals, birds and insects hunt, escape, mate, defend territory, sleep and even die on the wing. Survival up there depends not just on beating gravity and mastering flight, but also out-flying the competition.

Masters of the Sky
Many animals take to the skies for a split second, but to stay there, the planet’s strongest flyers push the laws of physics to the limit. Explore the extremes of true flight: power, acceleration, top speed, maneuverability and endurance.
