Hummingbirds/ Colibríes

These tiny, super fast, feathered jewels live only in the Western hemisphere, mostly in South and Central America. Their wings are so fast they audibly buzz as they fly by, hovering near flowers and camouflaging easily, making them hard to spot with the naked eye. These photographs were taken in Antioquia, Colombia.


Estas diminutas y rápidisimas joyas emplumadas sólo viven en el hemisferio occidental, principalmente en Centro y Sur América. Sus alas son tan rápidas que emiten un fuerte ruido al volar, al suspenderse sobre flores, y se camuflan fácilmente, lo que los hace difíciles de ver. Estas fotografías se tomaron en Antioquia, Colombia.
