Light as a Feather - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

Light as a Feather - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)
Last week I spent a few enjoyable hours photographing hummingbirds at Vancouver's Van Dusen Garden. I took hundreds of shots of hummingbirds flying about and feeding. However, I want to start with this photo because it well illustrates how very light and small hummingbirds really are in their environment. This hummer is perched on a slender and delicate flower only several inches long. The photo was taken in August 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.

Cathy, Tim Hanko, Judith, Piri & Picchio (Antonio Zerbo & Francesco Ferrara) and 51 other people have particularly liked this photo
