Coming at YOU

This close-up is from behind and to the right of the feeder with the sun to the left of the feeder. Since it was a sunny afternoon I was able to push the shutter to 800th of a second to pause those fast wing beats. This brings another point for those of you setting up to photograph your hummers. If you are not able to adjust your shutter speed on your camera, the building of a perch is handy. This will allow you to photograph the hummers that decide to perch and feed, especially since the use of a flash will startle them.

Just wanted to share that your blog has inspired me to set up hummingbird feeders around my house. I've already set up a finch feeder but am still waiting for them to arrive; maybe a few more days.
