Hummingbird in flight

White-necked Jacobin Hummingbird - Ecuador

The photograph above is a female White-necked Jacobin in flight. I created this image during a trip to Mindo, in Ecuador. I really like the effect of the not totally frozen wings, which gives a very nice movement perspective. Note that to freeze a hummingbird’s wings in flight, it will take about 5 flashes to get the job done…

From a post production standpoint, I made the feeder disappear in Photoshop with the clone stamp tool. No other adjustments besides that.

See you soon!
