Nazca Hummingbird
Nazca, Perú

Probably the most popular image of the Nazca lines (las lineas de Nasca), the hummingbird was pretty cool. We made a few passes because it was hard to capture, even in an airplane. This image has been a near-national icon for Peru for some time. It is sewn on hats and underwear and inked on skin as tattoos.
