Hum Hum Hummingbird

There's a couple for sure, if not four hummingbirds in my backyard. They zoom in an out aiming for the feeder almost every minute of the day, so of course I had to try to shoot them.

Oh, my gosh, Camellia!!!  Absolutely fabulous!!  These little guys w their wings are so hard to capture, but you did it!  We used to have a feeder and I was so fascinated by them.

I’m amazed to see one perched on the feeder. I want to attempt these one day myself. I’ve had people invite me over because they have feeders but when I go they aren’t there. I think it’s a hummingbird conspiracy. 

Good job.

Thank you Shane. I think he perched waiting for his/her friend to show up, but the friend decided to zoom this way and that way instead.

Thank you Heike. They are fascinating. I can't tell you how many shots I have of these guys both from the local hummingbird farm and my backyard, but I never seem to tire of these shots. Something magnetic about them.

Thank you Andi :) But then again you have other birds and insects around that we don't have and I wish we did.

Well for starters (we've talked about this before) snails....I have yet to see one in my area. Although, when I asked people they say  oh yeah we have some, but obviously I am blind :)
