A Hummingbird's Dance!
Watching this bird "dance" around the flower is a spectacle of nature.
To be able to capture the sense of what I see through the lens is much more then a technical achievement. After posting many images of hummingbirds here on so many websites, the feedback has been overwhelming.
People enjoy the beauty, and the sense of freedom. Imagine - all they need to do is visit a flower once in a while, and rest, what a life! What we don't see in the images is how much they fight! A dominant bird will tale over a flower, and not let anyone else in for a drink. This is the real nature of these birds. They can be very nasty!
All natural light, no flash ever used.
As a photographer, we share the pretty side, as a naturalist, we see the reality. for me, the fun is presenting the nasty side too... in some of my previous images.
Today is Canada day, enjoy the holiday Canadians, hope the weather is good in your area!
