Lego - The Hummingbird

Usually when I make a mechanised MOC I look for existing mechanisms on the internet, or into Sariel's amazing book ( website ), but for this one I decided to entirely improvise and invent the mechanisme for the wings. And I think I made it works quite well

I made it imagining a world where people have to harvest pollen from giant flowers, so they uses steam powered hummingbird... and as it's a Steampunk world, everyone has a topper and a monocle, including the machines. AND I JUST REALISED I FORGOT TO GIVE IT A MUSTACHE !
.... Yeah I don't know what's wrong with me either.

Anyway, here's a video and some pictures and a youtube Video:
