17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Tiny Dancer in the Garden

The bird in the photo is a juvenile Anna's hummingbird (Calypte anna). These hummingbirds are native to Western US and Canada. Anna's hummingbirds are found all year long in Vancouver, BC, the city where I live. As a kid, I have always loved birds. Hummingbirds were my favorite and my dream was to photograph one in motion and share it with my friends and family. Now that I have a telephoto lens, I finally captured a stunning image of an Anna's hummingbird drinking nectar in Stanley Park.
