Hummingbirds are famous for flapping their wings exceptionally fast that they create a distinct hum and appear as a blur of feathers right before your eyes. To look over the beauty of such a miniature creature is near impossible when the birds are zipping rapidly through the air.
Scotland photographer Chris Morgan demonstrated an incredible thirst for depicting the unique birds through his lens, during his trip to Costa Rica. To captivating hummingbirds, a lot of patience to be required, and Morgan did the job extremely well by capturing dazzling photos of many hummingbirds from quite close up.
Morgan photographs feature the astonishingly sharp details of eyes, beaks, and layers of bright, iridescent feathers and viewers can actually stare directly into the large, shiny black eye of a single bird.
Morgan said; the hummingbirds are normally so tempting to photograph to the point of madness and it took a while to be able to get any shots of one. In the space of an hour I took nearly a thousand of photographs. A good proportion was excellent out of focus pictures of bushes with no birds to be seen but i really felt my abilities improved over the hour, and nothing like a bit of practice.
