ABOUT THIS PHOTO

Recognized by the Audubon Society as one of the top 100 bird photos of the year, Eric’s photograph is now available as a signed limited edition print.

Statement from the artist: In the Summer of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic was raging as were numerous wildfires in Southern California. Stuck at home with an air conditioner on the fritz, I would have breakfast on my deck every morning. The air quality was terrible from the wildfire smoke, giving everything a hazy orange cast. I have a potted olive tree on my deck and each morning a single Allen’s Hummingbird would perch on the same branch just a couple feet from me. The bird soon became a regular and I began to enjoy his company. I started photographing him and he was completely unfazed. It was a joy to be able to photograph a perched hummingbird as such close range. Also I was shooting against a distant white retaining wall which gave the photos an uncomplicated graphic quality. I must have 1000 portraits of this bird, who I named Herbert, spanning several weeks. In this particular shot, the bird appeared on his usual perch. I was ready with the camera and took a few shots. I noticed something on his beak while looking through the viewfinder, but thought nothing of it. He flew away and returned a half a dozen times without shaking the object. When he flew away for good, I reviewed the photos in the camera to realize that a live fig wasp had hitched a ride on the bird's beak and never fell off through all the coming and going. I can only imagine that the insect was inside a flower and transferred to to the hummingbird. It was truly a moment of wonder and delight in a season of dark times.

Ballenas Debajo (Whales Underneath)

The magic of a gray whale emerging from the depths is a visual like no other. This series of photographs was taken by renowned photographer Eric J. Smith beneath the surface of Baja’s San Ignacio Lagoon. As the whales emerged from the murky depths, Eric created these ethereal black and white images. The photographs are now an exquisite series of signed and numbered limited edition fine art prints available to you.
