A Broad-tailed Hummingbird almost frozen at of a second. Even at those speeds I still got a tiny bit of movement on the wings and could not truly freeze the bird in mid air. The speed at which these birds move is something I still marvel at.
What a beauty! This is the Golden- tailed Sapphire, a lovely little hummer that occurs in forested areas in various South American countries. Photo taken at the fantastic WildSumaco Wildlife Sanctuary in Ecuador by Jonathan Rossouv
