"How delicate, the world's tiniest bird that can flash its bright colors, as well as hide them if needed. The bright radiant color on humming birds comes from iridescent coloring like on a soap bubble or prism. There it is, holding its body perfectly still while wings are beating 70–200 times per second. They are the only birds that can fly both forward and backwards, hover in mid-air, fly sideways and even upside down. This lovely image is captured with a ghostly reflective background."
Pic of the Week features the images of Jim Brandenburg, as selected weekly by his staff. With each selection, we hope to highlight the depth, breadth, and splendor of his work.
