Nebraska photographer Ryan McGinnis has created a compilation video featuring his best time-lapse storm video from 2014. The video highlights the ominous formation of a number of storms over head, largely taken from his home state.
I am mostly new to time-lapse and am still trying to learn the craft. Music is “Sunshine (Adagio In D Minor)” by John Murphy. Storms included are the Mother’s Day Nebraska storm, Burwell, NE on June 16, Chugwater, WY funnel, the hail monster that wrecked Gibbon, NE, and some minor misc other storms.
Even more stunning are the photographer’s still storm images.

To turn the tide on my losing side

The latest episode of the series Deep Look by KQED and PBS Digital Studios features slow-motion video of hummingbirds flying and feeding inside a wind tunnel.

They have to. Because of their high metabolism, hummingbirds have to eat their own weight in flower nectar every day.
