Quick, Quick, Slow

When in flight, hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of all animals (except for insects). But to conserve energy at night they can slow their metabolic rate to 1/15th of its normal rate.

Hummingbirds typically appear as sleek, flower-sipping shiny gems, but when the weather turns cold they fluff out their feathers for insulation and may eat more insects.
