Another shot of a rufous hummingbird sampling a crocosmia (aka montbretia). The wing is of course opaque. The illusion of transparency is caused by the wing speed – about 60 complete beats per second – and the lateral shutter motion. (No, I didn’t plan it that way!)
Taken near Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada.
