Super Hummer

Super Hum

It’s almost the Supermoon (again)! I know…I need to shoot things other than my little hummers…but it’s too hot to go out and about so my yard is my photo destination.

Either the male Anna’s Hummingbirds are more plentiful or they’re braver because the ones that let me close to them are boys. And I’m not always photographing the same bird because I sometimes see 4 or 5 at the same time.

Here’s a twofer…both males…

I can only get the girls at the feeders…

This one below was taken when it was almost dark so it’s grainy from high ISO but I like that the setting sun is catching his red head.

I have a bird totem to help channel my inner bird…

So are you going to shoot the supermoon? I might try again on Sunday but right before dusk like I did on the top shot so that I don’t have to use a tripod. I always have cats weaving around the tripod legs if I put it out in my yard and I really don’t want my camera to have an unfortunate accident.
