My favorite of the little hummers who visit the backyard feeder is this little fella which, if I’m not mistaken, is a Costa’s hummingbird, due to the iridescent purples and extensions of his throat feathers past the neckline. I have spent some good long hours laying in wait to get some decent captures of these particular birds as they are small and very fast and require the right angles to capture their ruby or purple colorings. Being restricted to manual focus only is another challenge i face when snapping away at these little hummers. These shots were taken at  300mm iso200 1/500sec exposure at f5.6 Hope you all enjoy! 🙂SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC

So this is the other little hummer that was sharing time at the feeder the other day. I happened to catch one shot of the little fella in mid blink and always wonder why it’s usually a bad thing when people do it on camera but, makes for interesting or adorable kind of moments when animals do.
