16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
When I took this photo, I imagined a famous person modeling before a crowd in the spotlight. That is how I view this small green-crown brilliant hummingbird. The name Brilliant even suggests it's a superstar. The mysterious white light in the background is what makes this photo unique. It allows the bird to separate itself from the green jungle while resting on a branch, giving me just enough time to snap this photo.
