Female Black-Chinned Hummingbird in Flight

Black-Chinned Hummingbird in Flight ♀

Quotation MarksI was excited to capture this shot of a female Black-chinned (I believe) hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri), seemingly hanging in mid-air. She was flying in bright sunlight, so when I adjusted the shutter speed for exposure, the background disappeared into blackness, providing this cool effect. The yellow bits on the top of her beak is pollen from the flowers upon which she had been feeding.
