Fairy-like loveliness

 

Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aerial dance among the flowers – a living prismatic gem…. it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness.

~W.H. Hudson

 

They really have that fairy-like loveliness….. Hummingbirds….

This week, at a friends backyard, I finally was able to photograph one taking a rest from its hovering dance and taking a break in the Coral Honeysuckle. Ah……., so much beauty in such a small little bird!

  1. Really like the first one of the bird hovering. Nice capture. Can you imagine what sort of shutter speed you would need to freeze the wings???? Wow!
