2023—Poetry in Motion

To me, there isn’t a bird that I’ve photographed with more fluid and graceful movement than a hummingbird. Their grace in flight is truly poetry in motion. At five inches in length, Rivoli’s Hummingbirds are the second largest hummingbird species in the United States, after the Blue-throated Mountain Gem. This beautiful male Rivoli’s is a stunning example of poetry in motion as he hovers in mid-air at Santa Rita Lodge in Madera Canyon, AZ a couple of weeks ago.
