p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Hummers and Flowers From the Garden


I try to plant things that the hummers will like and that will hopefully give me some nice photo opportunities. Sometimes it works out and sometimes not

I still have a few young males and females around. They seem to be trying to furiously feed and chasing each other all around . They are hitting some of the plants ignored in the past as they fuel up for the migration.

As always your nits, crits and suggestions are most appreciated and welcomed.


Thank you for taking your time to look and comment.

Hope you find something to bring a bit of joy .

Birdie

Nice set, Birdie! #3 is my pick - the vignette draws you towards the hummer in the center of the frame and keeps you in.

3, 4 and the last are gorgeous Roberta. it looks like you are now using the Oly 300mm f4. How is it going with the weight?

Morris, thank you ! The 300 is manageable , at least for the time being. The narrower grip on the camera is really helping. The stretching of my thumbs was a huge problem.
