My Backyard Birds: The Hummingbird

Sitting And Watching The Hummingbirds

I have been trying to change up our back yard to something that fits our needs over the last couple of weeks. The beginning of this change was put into place by a bag worm that wiped out our privacy hedge. So now that I have been spending more time in the backyard I have noticed just how fearless the hummingbird seems to be. They will feed within ten feet of me. With that in mind after working Sunday I sat out back and just relaxed with my Tamron 150-600mm lens to watch them for a bit. I made one image that I really liked. I thought that it was the one for the night. That image is the one directly below this paragraph. I decided to wait a few more minutes, and then saw the great opportunity that you see above. This was worth the wait as the bird went right into the perfect light for me.

Identifying The Hummingbird

I really am not good at identifying these birds. I do what I do with everything else, and I consult the internet. With the hummingbirds though it seems like my pictures match up with a couple of different kinds of birds. Do you know what these birds are? If you do let me know. They are fun to watch, but it would be nice to put a name to the face.

The Week In Photos

Last week I had a lot of fun. The college sports season started up again, and I was in heaven with all kinds of photos to be made. I also made some images in my backyard as well as the sports images. You can see my favorite images from last week here on my Exposure page.
