The photography and camera work is so exquisite, people have been asking if it is CGI.  The beauty of the natural world; the iridescent plumage of the hummingbirds; the incredible beak of the sword billed hummingbird; the way it has evolved to occupy a niche and survive – such artistry in nature.

You can really understand that the platform is designed to pick out exactly the page or information you are looking for in a jungle of information.  Google defined the name as being chosen because it means ‘precise and fast’.
