This is a tiny hummingbird of Costa Rica and western Panama.

I made this image using my multi-flash hummingbird station. Some people love the result, but it’s not for everybody. In my personal case I love the technique as it allows me to freeze motion in a way that lets me see details otherwise impossible for the naked eye. I used my trusty Canon Mark IV and 300f/4 lens plus several speedlites. Image taken in Costa Rica
