The Broad-billed Hummingbird’s elongated bill and tongue make it well suited for drinking nectar from flowers or for nabbing flying insects. Typically, this jewel-toned little bird ranges as far north as southeastern Arizona.
Photographer Paul Nelson followed the migratory patterns of North American birds to capture a one-of-a-kind glimpse of their natural and captivating movements as they take off for flight. Paul takes the photographs using a portable high-speed camera rig he specifically designed for this project. His portrayal of birds in their natural habitats without the distraction of complex backgrounds strikes a balance that is both beautiful and intimate.
