Having a backyard to photograph in is a gift from God. There is always something to photograph from flowers and plants to insects, squirrels and birds. Here are just a few images from yesterday afternoon and this morning. I was able to photograph an Anna's Hummingbird, an immature Rufous Humming bird and a couple of Duskywing Butterflies. Except for the mosquitoes this morning it was a lot of fun. God's love and blessings to all, chris Camera Equipment Used- Canon 7D, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens, Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with a Bogen 3055 Ballhead, For the hummingbirds (4)Canon 540EZ flashes set to 1/16th power with Isniper wireless remote flash triggers.
