Hummingbirds of Costa Rica
Photographing Hummingbirds of Costa Rica is a long-term, joint project for Chuck and Cindy. The numerous logistic and technical challenges have made it particularly exciting, but the special reward is in the power of the resulting images. Their techniques capture an instant of time that not only shows minute details of the birds but also reveals their exquisite colors. Hummingbirds everywhere face threats due to loss of habitat. Their goal for this project is to enhance awareness both internationally and within Costa Rica of these flying treasures by means of unique hummingbird-based artwork that reveals their extraordinary beauty. They hope to stimulate the political will and gather the international support that will ensure a bright hummingbird future.
