To Shoot a Hummingbird
I was at my grandmothers the other day and while sitting on her porch and a hummingbird kept coming up to the feeder. It cane by several times and each time it would stay longer and longer. I thought what a great thing to get on camera. Well it was easier said then done. I didn’t realize at the time how fast these birds are. After 2 hours of me concentrating on this feeder I finally did it. One I didn't realize I did, and the other is blurry, but glad I got it. These little birds are so fast and every time it would come into view, it took my camera too long to focus. When I had the camera on manual focus, I was just not fast enough when I realized the bird was at the feeder. Why am I so fascinated with this bird? Growing up my dad would always buy my mom any and everything that had to do with hummingbirds. Our kitchen in the house I grew up was decorated in hummingbirds. So always when I see a humming bird it makes me think of my mom. She was delighted to see these pictures I took. I promise to be able to post better pictures one day.
