Photograph of the Month

Green Crowned Brilliant, Craig Morgan

Green Crowned Brilliant

Photographed in Ecuador, this beautiful Green-Crowned Brilliant hummingbird was feeding on some orange tube-like flowers. The bird was not skittish at all and allowed numerous photographs to be taken. Due to the overcast weather, I had to use a slightly higher ISO. The medium shutter exposure allowed the stationary body and head of the hummingbird to be sharp, while the fast beating wings still showed some blur – I desired this blur to give the viewer a sense of motion of the wings.

F6.3, ISO 1250, Exposure 1/500s
