When I was in Costa Rica 6 years ago I witnessed something that was incredible to me. Hidden away along a shady rainforest stream was a place where several species of hummingbirds were coming in each day to bath. What a sight to behold!
At that time I didn't have the photographic equipment or skill to be able to capture what I was seeing through my binoculars. But ever since then I had dreamed about the day when I would return and try to capture this incredible spectacle in an image. I finally got my chance last month and was absolutely thrilled to be able to get some images that I am really proud of. If you can dream it...you can do it!
