May 17th – Hummingbirds

I’m always amazed at how close hummingbirds will let you get.  I was only about 8 feet from these.  They sure are fast though!  I had to crank my ISO up pretty high to catch them since it wasn’t very bright out.

  1. Good pictures. I am glad you finally got some of the hummers. I thought they probably liked the cigar plant but hadn’t seen them at it so it is nice to see they are sipping from it.l
