p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Hummingbirds Enjoying my Red Monarda :-) (4)


Hi PhotoFriends,

So glad you enjoyed my garden tour yesterday

I am so very excited to share with you my first Ruby Throated Hummingbirds photos for 2013. I usually see females or young males.

I do not use feeders to lure my hummers to my flower garden. They just come to tour my Red Monarda throughout each day enjoying the finest food via nature.

How do I capture my hummingbird photos?

I removed a screen in one of my front windows right near my sofa and out that window I planted red tall Monarda
When I photograph them they are 3 feet to 9 feet away. What you see is what you get. Flowers grow, they die, and bugs eat the leaves. So you are not always going to see perfect backgrounds. That is real nature.

Pix 1...








Pix 2...








Pix 3...








Pix 4...








As you can see how much they enjoy my favorite flower

Thanks again so much for visiting my special captures I have been longing and craving to get when it was a long winter

Hope you enjoyed my captures this Sunday!

BeeBalm

Wonderful set, BeeBalm! I always enjoy your posts, although I have commented infrequently on the garden photos (because I know so little about plants). These are terrific, for the technical aspects of the bird captures, and also for their spontaneity. Posed hummer shots (artificial backgrounds, flash setups) can be very striking, but there's always something special about seeing a bird in a natural environment. Thanks for sharing. ~Greg
