About This Image

female hummingbird, showing much rotation of her wings as she sips the nectar from this wildflower near our front patio.
You can see the movement at the top of the flower, from the "breeze" that her wings are creating.
captured from open front window, with telephoto lens

Interesting contrast between the extreme wing movement, while keeping her head completely still. Another classic photo. Great bokeh.

Beautiful shot. Love the way its wings flutter as it appears to stay motionless where it is.

I'm always amazed by the control these little beauties have Alandra. Super capture of the wing movement. Don
