Hummingbird Vignette

Hummingbirds are difficult to photograph. They move very fast. Also to get them in the wild, away from a feeder presents an optical challenge. They tend to disappear in to the foliage of the plants they feed on. In this case I used a vignette to make the bird stand out however you still can’t see the fast beating wings.

Welcome Back!

Every summer we have special visitors as the hummingbirds fly up from the south to visit. They seem to love red flowers the best so we plant flowers specifically to attract them. They visit each day, but getting them to pose for a picture is quite difficult. You can buy a print of this one at my commercial gallery by clicking here.

Hurry Back!

It is around this time of year that I get desperate for Spring and begin to look for signs of Spring returning to the mountains. Last week I saw and heard a Pileated Woodpecker. They don’t leave for long and are usually the first birds back to the area. Soon the winter birds will start to leave and fly north. Then the Robins will return. All these birds can fool you however, they can all handle a little cold and snow. You know its really spring when you see the hummingbirds and I can’t wait for their return.
