Attraction by PeterJCoskun Attraction by PeterJCoskun
One of my favorite subjects to photograph. Despite their speed and needing to use a very fast shutter speed to capture them, this was only shot at 1/320 of a second. I love getting images where their wings seemingly disappear. I haven't had much success recently with hummingbirds so this is a sign hopefully of more opportunities.

Anna's hummingbird- Arizona

I love, LOVE hummingbirds. There is something so precious and fetching about the way they move and interact with obstacles. "Attraction"... I think that is the perfect word for what a hummingbird might feel about a flower ^-^ you have to think if he is enraptured in a wonder similar to ours at the magnificence of his flower ^-^

1/320 of a second?!??!?! Hummingbirds are the hardest thing to capture in your lens. I Almost go a picture of one but he was too damn fast! Good job. what a beautiful bird.

Thanks! When they are positioned in one spot just kinda hovering it's easy to capture their body at slightly slower shutter speeds but their wings will almost always be blurred.

They are neat little birds, but a pain to photograph for the most part.

The orange of the flowers goes well with the background. The hummingbird is amazing, of course. Great job!

It is very nicely taken :) I really like the colours in this image, and how the bird is in a position that is not often seen in hummingbirds (in terms of having the wings back like this.

If I may ask, is it possible to post this picture (with reference) on my blog (naturewonders.tumblr.com)? With this site I hope to promote the beauty of nature with amazing images and information about the subject, in order to get people to fall back in love with nature, and help preserve it and/or save it.
