There are three species where I still have quite a few good photos to share, and this is one of them. What I find most fascinating about the hummingbird flash photography we carried out is the very many different poses these birds take, usually far too quickly for the human eye to even notice. The camera freezes the action and allows us to have a good look at these.

Mmmm.... I really love how you've frozen the action in this picture Andrea.

It really is a most unusual pose, isn't it. Super work here lassie. Thanks for showing it to us.

In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed
