Seeing The Hummingbird In Bad Light
This fall it seems like the only hummingbirds that I have seen have been in the shade. That is not good for this bird because you need a high shutter speed to to capture the fast moving wings. Here on the branch though I had a couple of options. I could have exposed for the bird, but the sky would have been white and blown out. I chose to expose for the sky and give myself a nice silhouette of the bird. It is not optimal, but I like a nice silhouette photo every now and then.
That Time Of Year
It is quickly becoming that time of the year when the leaves are changing and the birds are leaving. Soon the woods will be drained of all color. I really need to get back out there more than I have been lately. When the color is gone I will regret it if I do not.
