Welcome to Hummingbird Photos

These remarkable birds are difficult to photograph.

They’re small; they’re fast; and they’re active.

The hummingbirds in these photos range from 3.5 to 5.3-in (8.9 to 13.3 cm) long.

They fly over 40 ft/sec (12 m/sec) and dive at speeds exceeding 80 ft/sec (24 m/sec).

Enjoy.


Note: I put links to other articles and blog posts that show more photos of these birds.
