The following pictures reflect the magnificent nature of these creatures and have an intense rivalry that one does not appreciate with the naked eye.
“A high or low speed shutter allows scenes filled with magic. Freezing and capturing their behaviour are intense moments l share with my little friends”
I was stunned. The moment turned into epic. Clouds and rain disappeared as soon as they came. The window of opportunity was there. The afternoon softened the light and gave the scene a painterly feel. Colibris were resting while drying their feathers. Peace and quitness filled the air with a beautiful sweet scent of flowers I will never forget.
Beeing drawn to these wonders of nature, searching in different locations of the Americas, learning to understand Colibris has become a powerful experience. My goal was to capture the personalities and find out how different they can expose themselves. I was mesmerized to watch Colibris in dog flights or chatting extensively. Their weight of less then 10g allows them to stand on fragile leaves balancing in the soft evening breeze.
