Photo by @TimLaman & @natgeo . Hummingbird and moon. Back in Oct, I photographed this Costa’s Hummingbird just as the full moon rose at sunset in the Coachella Valley, California. There was just enough light coming from the sun to get some color in the foreground. Hummingbirds feed right up until it is getting dark, and then often go into torpor to survive the night, during which they can slow their heart rate down from over 500 beats/min to under 50 beats/min. These guys are such fascinating little birds! If you’d like to see more of my new images of hummingbirds from California, visit my feed @TimLaman.⠀

How did I get a shot like this? It is all about seeing an opportunity, getting an idea, and then having the patience to pull it off. In this case, waiting for the hummingbird to return to a certain flower I had lined up with the moon.⠀

Shot at Sunnylands as part of a project I’m working on to document the birdlife of this sanctuary. #hummingbird #moon #sunnylands #annenberg #birdsofsunnylands #birds #coachellavalley #palmsprings #ranchomirage #desert #california

A female Costa’s Hummingbird feeding at a hesperaloe flower. Check out the shadow of the flower petals on the birds wing. As you can see from several shots in this series, I love the drama of backlighting. To freeze the hummers wings like this, I shot this at 1/4000 sec, ISO2000, f2.8, on a 400mm f2.8 lens with the narrow depth of field giving me the nicely out-of-focus background. #TL_WildlifePhotoTips

Reposted from @natgeo - Photo by @TimLaman. Male Costa’s Hummingbird I shot a couple weeks ago in California. Hummingbirds are of course tiny, so I had to be within about two meters of the bird to get this shot, even with a huge lens. But the great thing about them is that they are not afraid of us slow-moving humans. So once I found a perch this male often used, it was just a matter of gradually moving closer with my whole big camera/tripod rig, and waiting for him to come and land again on his “mark”.

The hummingbird from @natgeo - Photo by @TimLaman. A female Costa’s Hummingbird feeding at a hesperaloe flower, from my project documenting the bird life in California’s Coachella Valley this year. To freeze the hummers wings like this, I shot this at 1/4000 sec. I love the way the shadow of the flower happened to fall on the birds wing in this backlit shot.

@Regranned from @natgeo - Photo by @TimLaman. A male Anna’s Hummingbird explores a patch of aloe flowers in his constant quest for nectar. This is one of the most common hummingbird species in California, but most people never get this close, and the bright rose color of the head can only be seen from the front. I enjoy capturing images like this that give you a glimpse of often overlooked beauty in nature.
