Whenever we think about hummingbirds, one or two things might come to mind like how they are very small and are able to flap their wings at a frenzied speed.

Another interesting fact is the hummingbird’s ability to drink nectar in the most uninviting conditions with a precision that cannot be matched with a surgeon’s scalpel.
