I haven't done much serious hummingbird photography for awhile. Yesterday I dragged out the photoblind into the backyard. I set up a single hummingbird feeder and put up a small slender perch for them to land on. I must say I didn't have a very long wait. The hummingbirds started using the feeder within minutes after I climbed into the blind and sat down. I photographed them for about twenty minutes and I had plenty of images to work with. This year I have had more hummingbirds visiting my backyard than ever before. It's pretty amazing. Thank you Lord for such beauty. Have a great day everyone, chris All images were created with a Canon 7DmkII and a Canon 100-400IS v.1. Camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 1600 F 8.0 shutter speeds varied #TeamCanon

Beautiful images Chris! It has been a bonanza year for Hummingbirds at my house also and I have heard the same from locals posting photos. I enjoy reading your blog and seeing your photography. God bless you and your family.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Brian, for stopping by and commenting. Interesting to hear that there have been a lot of hummingbirds over in the central valley as well. I have been here since 1991 one and this is the most hummingbirds that I have ever witnessed.On one day there were well over fifty in my backyard. It was just crazy.It has slowed down this week and there are 10-12 of them or so. I would imagine as it keeps getting colder that i will be down to my normal one or two resident Anna's that often stay all winter.ReplyDelete
