Photographer Chris Morgan loves Hummingbirds and photography. However as Hummingbirds are notorious for flapping their wings so incredibly fast that they create an audible hum and appear as a blur of feathers right before your eyes, they can be incredibly difficult to capture using photography.
Not to be deterred, during a trip to Costa Rica, the Scotland-based photographer demonstrated an incredible passion for documenting the unique birds through his lens.
“The hummingbirds were so tempting to photograph to the point of madness!” said Morgan. “It took a while to be able to get any shots of one. In the space of an hour I took nearly a thousand shots. A good proportion were excellent out of focus pictures of bushes with no birds to be seen! But I really felt my abilities improved over the hour. Nothing like a bit of practice.”
The results of Chris’ hard work has clearly paid off as evidenced by these spectacular images!
