I currently have eleven hummingbird feeders out.
I have five in the back (three 8 oz and two 16 oz), and six in front (all 8 oz). The ones in back I fill roughly once a day.
Last week we were sitting outside on the back patio. The feeders were on the second floor windows and on the deck railing above us. I shot these with the 70-200mm lens, and despite the ability of the lens, most of the shots turned out pretty dark.
I was shooting against the sky, you see.
Anyway, I’m not yet into the mode of photographing hummers, but these were froliking right above us, and I thought I would give it a go with some casual shooting.
Here’s a nice sequence (I thought) . . .
These are not my best photos, and I’ve not yet tried to have them land on my finger (last year). As I said, I was not that close, and shooting against the light. That means I had to play with the processing a bit to make them visible.
I thought this was a nice one:
When the hummers were not around, I entertained myself by shooting flowers.
These are zinnias.
This is one of two clematis in the same color
Anyway, here’s two more shots to tie you over until I start my efforts to properly capture these extremely fast flyers..
The SmugMug gallery, such as it is, can be found HERE. I’m not switching on the original views since the photos are pretty grainy. I’ll be getting better photos soon.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
