p.1 #1 · Hummingbird w/Salvia


The culmination of the last two day's efforts. Yesterday was rough with rain and gusty winds. One gust actually broke the Foxglove I was working with. So I moved on to the Salvia. Couldn't get the lighting right til today, when I was more rested and working with somewhat better weather.

Very nice shot.

If I may ask, what type of salvia is that? Is it more like a bush or is it an annual/perennial flower? I'd love to plant some to get better hummer pictures (get the stupid feeder out of my shots).

Hi,

This is an annual. Not sure exactly what type. I've had a hard time getting a bird to approach it in past seasons, though this year it seems fine. I guess it depends on the individual hummingbird. Good luck!

Thanks for the good words.

I like the proportions of the flower and the hunmmer, as it gives a nice sense of habitat.

The sense of proportion is something that's more recent for me. I've finally gotten away from "close up" type work to a more logical aesthetic and I'm much happier now. Thanks for the good words, Richard.
