A Hummingbird. May 24, 2012

I wasn’t satisfied with last evening’s photo of a hummingbird in our dooryard.  It was dark and slow, due largely to the waning light of evening.

So today I set up again on the porch, expecting our hummingbird to make frequent visits in somewhat better light.

I’m still not satisfied with what I came away with, but it’s a step in the right direction:

That second one is my favorite, as it speaks to the joy of drinking nectar right from the blossom.

I’ll keep trying to get these right, and hope that you’ll keep rooting for me to succeed.

I love hummingbirds. I would buy either of these (or on my budget, a print),

Robyn, it’s lovely of you to say so. I hope to have my photos available soon through an associated web site, so please keep on visiting!

They are both lovely shots but I think I agree with you about the second one – the ephemeral background really highlights the hummer.

Yes, Susan, the background makes this shot. It’s not the first-order consideration of most photographers, but in this case it carries a lot of weight.

They’re both unreal. I’d love to see the real deal, but based on the small “blog” versions, these look worth taking action toward publishing somewhere…

Thanks Ursi. They’ll at least get printed and matted. And yeah, the “real deals” are way nicer than the blog versions! 🙂
