Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

ev·a·nes·cent [evəˈnes(ə)nt]


  1. Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.

Have you ever tried to photograph hummingbirds?  They’re quick, right?  One second they’re there…the next second you have an empty photo.  Unless there is a feeder around.

Or two feeders.

Or a dozen.

Or more.

Such was the case at Cafe Colibri, which sits just outside the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve in Costa Rica.  And, let me assure you that vast numbers do not make it easier to capture these zippy little creatures.  But, it only takes one good photo to give me a thrill.

I shall name him Evanescent.
