Description

The broad-tailed hummingbird drank from a sugar water feeder on my family’s ranch south of Glenrock, Wyoming. It was joined by several other hummingbirds. They darted around each other, apparently not disturbed by the mid-morning summer heat. This hummingbird turned away from the feeder and focused its attention on a wasp that was buzzing nearby. I kept shooting and it was only later, when I uploaded the files to my computer, that I realized the hummingbird and wasp were aligned when I took this image. Even more intriguing, the wasp was in focus in the foreground, but the hummingbird in the background was not. After this split second, the hummingbird grew disinterested and didn’t pay any more attention to the wasp.
