I am a huge fan of those lil buzzers and have had some interesting occurrences with them. The vibrant reflective colors of their feathers are otherworldly! I am drawn to this image due to the bright green pseudo halo surrounding his back. I am going to assume it is a blurred green leaf due to wide aperture setting. Right place at the right time!! Thank you for sharing your vision! Cheers!!!🤙🏼
See all
