Mystic flower

A rarely seen Black eared fairy hummingbird visits a flower of a flame tree in the heart of the Atlantic rain forest in Brazil.A photo that took 2 months to shoot, having to rely on a beam of sunlight penetrating the rain forest to illuminate the flower and a extreme amount of luck for the hummingbird to visit the flower at the same time.
