Wings in Slow Motion

Broad billed Hummingbird, Madera Canyon, Arizona

I'm fascinated with birds in flight and have been fortunate to capture a few photos worth sharing.  Lately, I've been messing around with high speed videos at 120 and 240 frames per second (fps).  The result is slow motion; often revealing some of the added beauty of flight that we don't normally appreciate as birds whizz by!!

Here's a short compilation of some of my latest video clips from the past few months, including birds from Costa Rica and Mexico, as well as here at home in Victoria, BC.

By the way, if you find yourself in North America in February, Madera Canyon, just outside of Tuscon Arizona, is a fantastic place for escaping the Canadian winter and enjoying early spring birds.  See the Friends of Madera Canyon for more info.
