Flight of The Hummingbird

On a nice warm evening, I had the pleasures of capturing one of nature’s finest and fastest birds known to the animal kingdom.  What started out to be just a simple ‘backyard’ photo session with simple still-life of garden gnomes and the occasional flowerpot with cacti; eventually, turned into a session that only comes when being at THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME is evident.

Capturing the hummingbird wasn’t planned nor was it rehearsed, but to have the ability and the fortitude, along with the 300mm telescopic primed and ready to shoot was definitely a moment behind the camera that I could NOT pass up.  All my knowledge, training and countless photo shoots led up to THIS POINT.

As a photographer, it’s vital to have your camera with you at all times.  This was a great lesson learned and reward; achieved.

HELPFUL TIP: They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing flapping rates, typically around 50 times per second.

Here are the photos from my impromptu Hummingbird photo session.  ENJOY!
