Hummingbirds are awesome. They”ve also been scientifically proven to be the cutest birds in the animal kingdom. If you”ve never seen one up close, don”t worry you”re not alone. These birds can flap their wings up to 50 times a second, and they”re really tiny. Well Scottish photographer Chris Morgan is here to help. Earlier this year Morgan visited Bosque De Paz, a privately-owned 3,000 acre biological reserve in Costa Rica. There he was able to get up close with some hummingbirds and snap some seriously amazing shots. Check them out.
