2011 has been a crazy year of bird photography for me. With trips to Ecuador, Costa Rica, All over BC, Newfoundland and Churchill I definitely racked up some air miles. It is really hard to pick ONE favourite from this year. But if I had to I think I would choose this image from Costa Rica of a Violet-crowned Woodnymph Hummingbird emerging from a small stream in the forest. I had dreamed of taking a photo like this for a long time and it was a great thrill to execute my vision.
Wishing you all a very happy New Year!
