She Brings Her Camera Into The Backyard. What She Captures? INCREDIBLE!






Hummingbirds are amazing creatures. They’re some of the smallest birds in the world, and they’re also some of the fastest. They flap their wings at an unbelievable rate of 50 flaps PER SECOND!

Try flapping your arms that fast. Really. Do it…. Okay, you look ridiculous, please stop, you’re embarrassing yourself. Because of their speed, hummingbirds are able to basically hover in place while they do things like feed on nectar.

Well, California-based Tracy Johnson is a musician who’s developed a deep passion for taking photographers of hummingbirds and posting those on her Instagram account.

The creatures lived in her backyard, and that’s how her fascination with them really began.

Now she’s able to show off not only the beauty of the birds, but also her own mad photography skills. Let’s take a look at a handful of her pictures below.

Here’s an amazing orange hummingbird with its little wings spread wide. Don’t those neck feathers almost look like scales? Well, birds are descended from dinosaurs…

This beauty is showing off an incredible range of colors. From yellow and purple down to traditional-looking feathers, all the way to luminescent rainbow tail feathers. Really gorgeous!

Tracy has taken to calling the birds, like the little guy in this photograph, “flying rainbows” because of the way their colorful feathers seem to reflect the entire rainbow spectrum.

Doesn’t this bird look almost like a fairy from the back here? This moment is a brief pause in a life otherwise filled with movement. It’s almost like this bird wanted to show off, just for us.
