Airborne ballerina

And now, a dance!

Sometimes when the camera locks on, it locks on. I had to put this together as sequence because it shows how gracefully she moves through her space. You can start on either end and it’s so wonderful. The pose with the arched back is especially neat to me. So many frames that aren’t sharp show what twisting little contortionists hummingbirds are and sometimes I end up keeping them just to marvel at their flexibility. But this time, the camera stayed locked and I didn’t move. Not that I really could have kept up with her. This is four out of like ten shots in a second so it’s amazingly quick. A split-second later she zipped up and out of the frame. Just thought I’d share.
