The Hummingbird Lady & "that" famous photo

I was very interested to read one of the latest articles on the Birds & Blooms website that explains how a famous photo was taken of Abigail Alfano (also known as as "The Hummingbird Lady"), feeding hummingbirds from her hand. After reading the article, I discovered Abigail has a website with photos.

  2. Yes, indeed. It would be an incredible experience, and I'm sure other people are trying to do the same thing with hummingbirds, now that they know her secret.

  3. I love hummingbirds and really miss them over here. I have some amazing shots of my cousins husband back in Canada with one resting on his hand though. I'll have to post them one of these days! They are fascinating creatures!
