The Colour Attracts!!
Almost everyone, but the colours of these flowers attract the hummingbirds, since they have no sense of smell.
Usually the brightest flower works best for hummingbird photography. This beautiful male Green-crowned brilliant came in for some nectar during our phototour last week. Even a shutter-speed as low as 1/1600 was able to do a nice job freezing the wings. all natural light with all of my images., no flash is ever used.
Thanks to all who share and comment, so much appreciated!
Save our planet, and respect nature please., for our children.
