Amazing things happen!
In Costa Rica!
A recent tour with several guests when extremely well when these beautiful birds came to us for a visit! At least 60 hummingbirds from about 7 different species entertained our group for an entire day!
With the light constantly changing in the cloud forests at almost 9,000 feet, the exposures are challenging. this image was a titch dark on the Raw file, so I was able to make corrections in CS5 software.
Never using flash, and loving natural light is the key here, my camera gives me nice resolution at 1600 - 2000 iso, so just enough shutter speed to make this work.
At 4 fps, I was able to capture 8 sharp images of this scene, so since the tougue was extended for this shot, I figure this one was the image to edit.
Please respect nature, and the environment, please do not litter, or destruct the home of these beautiful creatures around the world.
