13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Humming Alps

We traveled through the middle of Switzerland to the Alp village of Gimmelwald. After a long journey including several trains, a bus, and a cable car we made it to our destination. After such a long journey we were enjoying a beer gazing at the Alps and happened to look over and see a hummingbird. We whipped out our camera and tried our best to capture the moment.
