When I went to San Diego back in September I was delighted to get the opportunity to photograph hummingbirds. This was the first time I had photographed them. They were amazing little birds and I was amazed how fast their wings moved, a veritable blur of motion. In the top photo I was walking through the children's garden and I sat down in a shady spot. Next thing I knew I saw a little bird flittering from flower to flower and that is a lifer for me, my first sighting ever of a hummingbird. You can just make out that little bird off center in the right hand part of the photo. My reflexes are getting better. I had camera in hand faster than a flea can jump.
Can you see his tongue sticking out?
This little one sat on a branch only a few feet from me. He let me gingerly edge my way to where I could have almost reached out and touched him.
