Rufous-tailed Hummingbird Amazilia tzacatl. Costa Rica. Photographer: Cat Edwardes, United Kingdom. Category: Creative Imagery. HONOURABLE MENTION. Photographer’s Story: ‘I wanted to take a slightly different image of a hummingbird to capture the light through its delicate wings. I found a particularly good flower that would work in silhouette. In the end I had to take hundreds of images until I got the perfect wing position and a slight separation between the bird and the flower. This is all captured in-camera.’ Canon EOS 1DX with Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens. 207mm focal length; 1/200 second; f/16; ISO 800. Tripod.
