Last Look


The hummingbirds have been gone for a few weeks, but I still have some photos I hadn't posted yet. These will probably be the last hummingbird shots I use for this year.

Lovely juvie and hopefully it makes it back next season. Between Hummingbirds and Butterflies, they sure have a difficult journey~

The hummers are so charming--especially in these quiet poses that you've captured here. Enjoy seeing their intricate markings.

Cute shots of your hummers, Brian! I miss them, can't wait for spring!

genie said...

Brian…Buddy and I have a question for you…please forgive us if we sound really ignorant. Are all of these pictures of the same hummingbird in the last shot? The captures are awesome. We are already missing Hector Hummingbird and all of his extended family. They are long gone from here,

I come here to see exquisite and you always give me exquisite ... and then some. This handsome little juvenile is putting on quite a show for you. Wonderful, wonderful ... I hated to see them go, but can look forward to their return in the spring. Thanks, Brian ... you make my day :)

Wonderful shots. The depth of field is so good.

Your hummer pics are sensational. Not sure how you minimized noise at 1000 ISO and greater. Wow!!!

Wally Jones said...

More superb images of these flying jewels!

Nice work!

Wonderful bird! Although I may have said that before (and I'll probably say it again when you post some more)
