With its wings outstretched, at first glance it’s almost impossible to tell the little bird is different from the flower. The only give-away is its small, thin, bill that peaks through its wings.
The spectacular photos were taken by photographer Florian Kuster on the slopes of a volcano in Costa Rica.
The 32-year-old, who is from Switzerland but lives in Costa Rica, drove for an hour on a narrow mountain road before finding the hummingbirds.
He said, “I went there for location scouting for my photography workshops. I drove for one hour on a bumpy, narrow mountain pass.
“I enjoyed a beautiful landscape and cold winds at the highest elevation, rain and heavy clouds are guests all year round and give the region a mystic atmosphere.
