Belly Rub A La Kolibri by Katja Zuske
Hummingbirds are frequent visitors to my backyard and I just love them - they are little birds with an immense attitude! I sometimes even get buzzed by them... their way to make sure we know the hierarchy in the yard! A couple summers ago, this one came to my backyard fountain once or twice a day to take shower. I watched this activity for some days and then decided to try and capture it. It took weeks of trial and error to get this moment when the bird was there at a time of the day when the light was right and both the equipment and photographer were ready. I decided not to use a flash but try it with natural light and a speed high enough to freeze the water stream to droplets.
