Ryan Griffiths grabbed his camera as soon as he saw this hummingbird dive into a flower next to his parents’ cottage on Loon Lake, near Kearney, Ont. “Usually you see hummingbirds hovering next to a feeder in photos,” Ryan says. “I thought it was neat to see him jammed right in there.”
It is neat! We’ve never seen anything like it, and we think it’s safe to say that not a lot of people have. The photo is great technically, and the way the flower flows in from the side of the image and extends upwards creates good composition.
