Not content with being the fastest mover on the planet, the Anna's hummingbird is also the fastest shaker.

An ultra-slow-mo camera that can shoot at up to 650,000 frames per second has caught the birds performing a micro-shimmy that is 10 times faster than a dog shakes after a bath.

Hummingbirds are supercute. I'm not surprised one of them has the fastest shimmy :)
