13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A bird perched on a bush in Aruba
When I arrived on the beach in the Bahamas I noticed this colorful bird flying around very quickly. I made it my mission to capture the perfect shot of this magnificent creature. I spent days following it around until I found its nest. From there I chased the bird around the beach for days until it landed perfectly for a moment. This is the result of that moment.
