Photograph by sunrisesoup on Flickr


In this perfectly timed photo by sunrisesoup we see an encounter between two fast flying creatures, a hummingbird and bee.

The photo was taken at Madera Canyon, located at the northwestern face of the Santa Rita Mountains, about twenty-five miles southeast of Tucson, Arizona. To get the shot required a quick eye and fast shutter speed, 1/2000 to be exact!

For more information check out the original post on Flickr. Many thanks to Mr. John Beezer for the submission!
