This shot recently recieved 2nd place, out of nearly 3000 entries in a February ’08 contest on another photosite. So now we can reveal how we did it.
This is actually three separate shots of the same female Calytpe Anna hummingbird in three different positions as she hovered to approach and land on the feeder. I layered each shot over each other, aligned the feeder, masked & blended each layer to expose each bird and merged them all into one image to give the appearance of three separate hummingbirds lined up at the feeder.
