A common and widespread species frequenting feeders throughout it’s range in Ecuador.

The only way to fully capture and freeze the fast moving wings of the hummingbirds is through flash photography, and each exposure is a way to study in detail every adjustment they perform which are too fast and frequent to our eyes and brains to fathom in real-time.

Fortunately many of the hummingbird species gladly visit feeders, but with those who never do so it’s quite a challenge capturing them with flash photography.
