Hummingbirds in Flight
I’m still obsessed with catching the hummingbirds in flight. They are so dang fast, and it’s so rewarding when I can get a half way decent shot.
This is just a cute shot of a fluffy white hummingbird butt. And tiny little feet.
This series of shots, turned out pretty nice I thought. I applied textures to these, and I like the look of them. I have added these to the Mary Hone Photography website.
This is the female Anna’s hummer. I’ve never noticed before, but they have little jewels on their throats.
The other day I was in the house, on my computer, and I could hear a loud bird chirping sound outside. I went to the window, looked all around, but the only thing I saw was the female hummingbird sitting on the branch. I thought for sure something was under the RV, so I crept out the door. Nothing. Turns out, the hummingbird makes a very loud chirping sound. Way louder than their tiny little body. Crazy.
Yesterday, I caught the male hummer right at take-off.
He sees something…
I love these little guys, and I wonder if they don’t have a nest nearby. If the female comes, the male shows up after a while and chases her away. Maybe they are taking turns sitting on eggs. I can see the male most of the day hanging out around the big ironwood tree, which would be a good nest spot.
More hummingbird buddies in the making perhaps.
This is a GIF I made from a series of shots. To really see it as GIF though, you have to view it on facebook. For some reason wordpress doesn’t support a GIF file.
