Frozen in Flight
The technical challenge for Photographers!
To capture a hummingbird in flight, with little or no wing blur. Personally, I like a bit of blur. To me it just looks more natural. I do not like flash for birds for this very reason., they simply look fake.
When we are watching these birds buss around the flowers, our eyes and brains cannot be fast enough to freeze the wings, so a bit of blur is more natural.
Once in a while, when I get lucky, the wings are caught in an almost still position, with a bit of blur.. as this image has those properties.
Thanks for looking, I hope you will join me in Costa Rica some day!
