I got a hummer!!

Woo hoo! I managed to snag a picture of this little guy. My friend Steve told me some settings on the camera to get this. Mainly a flash sync speed of 1/250 sec so you can stop them and still get a little motion blur in the wings. I have a lot learn as I think this could be sharper but for now I am happy to finally see hummers out here. We’ve never had them before. They seem to like the bottle brush plant that is newly planted and in bloom now.

    WOnderful catch! Yes, they love bottle brush plants! Add a feeder nearby and I’m sure they will stay after the bottle brush finishes blooming!

    You sure did, and a fine job too. Now, I just wish I could but I never see many hummingbirds. I need to attract them, I guess. Trouble is I am not very attractive. I could put Carol out in the yard tho.
