Hummingbird Flight

    Newer Older

    A hummingbird in flight.

    Hummingbirds are not the easiest bird in the world to get a good shot of. The tend to be really, really fast (as you can imagine) and don't always stay in one place. Catching one in flight, then, is a little bit harder.

    This lovely bird, however, was caught in flight. As he was approaching a feeder he began to pull up; it was at this moment in time my opportunity came about, and I was not shy. As it turned out, I had been sitting there, waiting, waiting, waiting for the longest time before this shot came about. But, really, is there any better way to spend an afternoon watching hummingbirds do their thing?
