Artist's Description

Done with Nikon D50, lense Sigma APO DG 70-300. 1:4-5.6
I love hummingbirds. These birds feed on nectar from flowers using a long extendable tongue. They also consume small insects caught in flight. A PBS documentary that first aired January 10, 2010, shows how Anna’s Hummingbirds eat flying insects. They aim for the flying insect, then open their beaks very wide. That technique has a greater success rate than trying to aim the end of a long beak at the insect.

While collecting nectar, they also assist in plant pollination. This species sometimes consumes tree sap.
This picture is dedicated to my sister Karin, who is almost the same fast as hummingbirds. At least she is busy woman.
