When it comes to birds, the hummingbird is one of the most delicate and beautiful you will ever see.  Below is a list of stunning hummingbird photos to show you just how beautiful they are.

Trying to capture a photo of a hummingbird in flight can be very difficult since they are capable of beating their wings up to 52 times a second. This gives them the ability to hover and fly backwards.
