I've read that they move really fast and have like 180 wings movements per minute, or something! It really is hard to catch it in your viewfinder!
Why does it have its tail up while drinking? Quite a strange pose ;)
And it has SUCH thin and small wings in comparison to its body!

these ones make 90 full wingbeats per second . I think it's tail is up just too keep it from getting damaged.
