During our visit to Puerto Quepos, Costa Rica, we took an aerial tram tour and nature walk through a tropical rain forest. I had been taking photos of this ginger blossom when I noticed a hummingbird flying nearby. Just as I fired off a series of shots of the ginger the hummer flew into my frame! I got off a burst of just a few shots before he flew away. While this is the best one, it certainly isn’t “perfect” enough to win any nature photo contests but it works for me.

Works for me, too. Nice shot, Tom.
Thank you, Ken!
This picture is now my wallpaper….thank you!
Mine too, Dottie! Glad you’re enjoying it.
Also works for me. And, you had to be there and be ready, which you were.
I have just one shot of the flower without the bird, two with the bird in the wrong place and out of focus, and this one. Once I realized that I had this one I stopped. Kathy is still chuckling about how my voice sounded when I said “I got it!” 😉
