Hummingbird

Posted in Animals, Birds, Nature by joncrispin on 11/06/2012

The hummingbirds have been draining the feeders this year.  They are very territorial and are always chasing each other around.  I had forgotten just how noisy they are.  They “cheep” in a manner not too different from the chipmunks.

    Wow, great photo! How fast was your shutter speed to catch the wings so perfectly?

      I think 1/4000 of a sec at f2.8. 3200 iso. Amazing what digital cameras can do these days. Thanks. Jon

    I never had a feeder for them but for years kept a hedge of lavender in front of my house. The same neighbors that did not like the lavender, wondered how I managed to have all those hummingbirds…

    Beautiful photo, Jon! I have been trying to attract hummingbirds this year, but no luck as of yet.
