Hummingbirds are some of my favorite creatures. No bigger than a ping-pong ball and no heavier than a nickel, they are fearless at confronting beings hundreds of times greater in size. I’ve put up a feeder by my window in order to watch their aerial antics, but the tiny fliers always seem too quick and too far away to get a really good look.
Photographer Chris Morgan has captured the iridescent plumage of this teensy terror in all its glory. Each intricate feather is smaller than a caraway seed but packs a colorful punch!
