Camera Critters: Humming.......




As quickly as it arrived, a female Hummingbird prepares to leave her perch.

With my brothers family enjoying their visit to Yellowstone, I have been raiding their hummingbird feeding station for images.

This is an unusual shot, as she is about to take off again. Very nice.

I just learned that all my stuff, photos and such, was being published on a site in Spain. I went there and sure enough it was. So I had to change my RSS feed from Full to Short and that took the photos off and left only a sentence or two on their site. I have asked them to remove it all but will have to wait and see. I did not see you there yet which surprised me as good as you are.

I have also been spammed twice by the same guy and reported him to blogger. So I have no idea what is next. I might have to change my blog or make it by invitation only or quite altogether.

The photo is excellent. I like it a lot.

Your brother's hummingbird feeder has turned out to be a great place to hang out! Nice shot.

What an amazing action shot! You were certainly on the money with this one! I have been trying all summer but most were blurred.

Have a wonderful weekend!

At the speed the wings on these little birds go at this is a marvellous capture.

Heather said...

Great shot Salty, I would have done the same thing since they do not want to show up at my house.

Great get!

Misty Dawn said...

Awesome capture Salty!!! I almost got a shot of a hummingbird yesterday, but it flew away before I got close enough. I sure wish you were around and could teach me how to capture moving subjects like this!

I LOVE hummingbirds. I know there are a few around here but I just attract them yet. I found one last weekend inside an antique store and tried to grab a few shots... it didn't turn out. :-) Yours turned out great - as always!
