Humming-Blur


I’ve posted a few pics of local hummingbirds on this blog.  All of them are hovering over, or on, flowers – happily feeding.  I  like this photo because the hummer is  in flight away from the flowers and everything else, including his wings, is blurred.  I also liked the muted background colors with a mixture of morning blue skies, green plants, and a few pink flowers.

  2. Lucky you! I’ve been trying to capture a hummer, but not having too much luck so far. Great shot you got!

      • Easier said then done. One of my main probs is the location. Too much blending, not enough contrast for a hummer to stand out. I’m trying different angles. I’ll get one. I have time to practice. xx Amy

    • Z – thank you so much! It does take some patience (something I’m not known for) but it is fun when you get a good one!
