They’re Back

The hummingbirds, a personal favorite, have retuned to the yard with a vengeance due to the Crocosmia starting to bloom. They've been dive bombing each other much of the day, though I'm still trying to catch two in frame with little luck.

The problem is that I've gotten so many good shots in the last few years that I'm seldom satisfied with the shots I get the first few days when the hummingbirds seem particularly skittish. So far this one:

and this one

are my favorites, but I truly expect to get much better shots than these in the next few days

  1. Your bird pictures are always amazing. I can’t imagine how you can catch a hummingbird in midflight like that – wonderful!

    We don’t get hummingbirds by us much – I used to see them occasionally when we lived up near Rochester, NY, as it was in a more rural suburb than where I live now. I did see one in San Francisco once! At first I thought it was a big bug, it was moving so quickly!
