If you want to photograph hummingbirds, go to where the hummingbirds are. Ecuador certainly qualifies as “hummingbird land” as almost 1/2 of the world’s species can be found here. These two birds, a Violet-tailed Sylph and a Brown Violetear, were competing for the same flower near San Tadeo Ecuador. I was shooting with ambient light only and it was very dark, so I had to shoot with a high ISO, but was fortunate that both birds were in the same DOF plane. Shot with a Canon R5, 100-500 lens (343 mm), SS 1/2000. f/5.6, ISO 10,000. Processed with DXO PR, PS, Topaz DeNoise AI. Cropped from L and top significantly to remove distracting elements.
