p.1 #1 · Woodies and Hummers (5)


I was very much looking forward to heading out in the yak this past Sunday with visions of Greenies dancing in my head. The morning broke with clear skies pre-sunrise but when I got to the lake the marine layer had condensed and the ubiquitous morning clouds formed. I spent a lot of time just poking around until the clouds thinned a little bit providing a bit of diffused light. I took advantage of that photographing a preening male Wood duck who was quite cooperative.

I also included 2 hummers, one for those of you that weren't really fond of my wingless wonder in my last post... here is one fully outstretched for you. Also one just for fun.

Nice one footed Woody Tim, gosh they have so much to offer to the camera!

Oh and I thought you forgot to cut off the string that the price tag was on in #4

Last shot is pretty cool 3D looking buddy, nice color and definitely froze those wings!

Hey Tim, beautiful set, that second hummingbird shot just jumps off the page. Reading your text am I to understand your shooting an 800mm out of a yak? That's impressive dude

Ohhh Eric....makes me afraid to open what you're posting next. Wait, I already did.

Tim, I expect quality work from you and well, you deliver every time. I agree with Karl - that last hummer shot is sweet....even with the head turned away slightly. In fact, for this shot, I think that head angle is quite suitable.

As for the other hummer shot - not going there.
