OMG - A hummer!

  1. Finally....

    I finally managed to be at the right place at ALMOST the right time to capture a hummer not at a feeder :)

    I was on my way back to the car and just outside the nature center I noticed some motion out of the corner of my eye.

    The sun had just dipped below the trees leaving everything in shadows so I had to use my flash - and I was about 20 feet away - so with reckless abandon I fired away in its general direction before it quickly flitted off in to the evening....

    I think she likes this spot - so I'll have to camp out near there when the flowers are still in the evening sun and see if I can snag some crisper, clearer, better shots...

    Paul, This is a great shot. My wife says I spend more time with the hummingbirds than I do with her. If your wife is like mine you may not want to camp there because she may not let you back in.

    Nice shot of the hummingbird!
     
  6. Nice capture. If you shoot in the evening, then 5-7 p.m.
    will be the best time to do. Looking forward to see another
    hummer shot. So prepare yourself with some light foods and
    a bottle of water and maybe a magazine.
