My passion for photography is for hummingbirds. It started about 5 years ago when a mama hummingbird built a nest in our yard here in Maricopa, AZ. At that time, I decided I wanted to start taking pictures of these beautiful flying jewels. I have since had 5 photos published in Birds & Blooms magazine and have had 2 photos published in The Best of 2017 Birds and Blooms hard cover book. I spend my spare time in my back yard photographing these beautiful birds and learning about them. I have created a group on Facebook called The Hummingbird Whisperer who has almost 44,000 members in 4 years. I love all nature really. I also have a group on Facebook called Nature Addicts with about 43,000+ members. You can follow my photography page at Lisa J Swanson Photography.
