Congratulations to photographer Alex Vargas! His picture of a Magnificent Hummingbird (left) and a Fiery-throated Hummingbird feeding at a flower is the winner of our Photo of the Week Contest for January and February.
“It’s always a bonus to have two subjects in the frame, especially when both have good poses and are well placed,” he says. “The red flower complements the beautiful clean green background, and I really like the alternate wing positions, as well as the hummingbird with its bill open. The techs are solid. There is also another added surprise here: Look closely for the insect perched on one of the flowers!”
We’ll publish the photo in our June 2014 issue.
