During her time spent photographing in the Talamanca Mountains in Costa Rica, Jess Findlay, a professional photographer, was able to capture this breathtaking image of a fiery-throated hummingbird.
While patiently waiting for one of the small birds to perch at just the right angle, he took hundreds of photos over the course of several hours using a telephoto lens. The result is the image you see here.
“A number of these hummingbirds were seen consuming nectar from one of these feeders. As they fed hungrily, often quarreling with one another, occasionally one would get displaced onto a nearby branch,” said Finlay.
“Because of how fidgety these birds can be, as well as the fact that one can see the full spectrum of color on them only when they are pausing in a very particular position, this proved to be a difficult task.”
Findlay is a native of Vancouver where he’s extremely active in the photography community, offering a wide variety of workshops. On Instagram, you’ll find more of his work to peruse.
