Vervain Hummingbird

Transparent Wings?

Viewed 6 Times

The Vervain Hummingbird was active at our lodging as well.  This small bird is also found on Haiti and the Dominican Republic so was not technically a Jamaican endemic.  I took this shot early one morning in low light so my shutter speed was only 1/125th of a second; impossible to stop the action of the wings at that slow of a speed so they appear blurred, seemingly transparent.
