Rufous Hummingbirds can be found in southern Alaska down through a large part of the western U.S. and Mexico. Watch out, other hummingbirds! The feisty Rufous is not afraid to chase away even the bigger guys.
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.
