Magnificence in miniature

It has been a very good summer for hummingbirds.  It is not too hard to catch them at the feeder or during the brief moments when they’re perched and resting, but it’s a real challenge to try to get good images while they’re in flight, and sometimes the patience it takes pays off.  I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to get these two.  Finn, these are for you.

    I’m not sure what fascinates me most about these small folk–their diminutive perfection, their aerobatic agility, the incredible iridescence of the male’s throat feathers, their ability to migrate thousands of miles and return–all of the above, and more! Thanks, Dezra!

  5. If only…..yes if only they visited our country and my garden. Great

      Works both ways. You’ve introduced me to a number of feathered folk I’d love to see over here as well, but we still curse the idiot who wanted to import all of the birds mentioned by Shakespeare into the new world.

    I have yet to capture anything anywhere near as nice as these, and it sure isn’t for lack of trying!
