Hummingbird – Resting

These are a couple of past hummingbird photo’s I like. While visiting my in-laws one time the hummingbirds were passing through on their migration. They always seem to hang around at least a couple of weeks with a few staying longer.
I took so many pictures it seemed like my camera was telling me to slowdown and enjoy. So that’s what I did for a couple of days. I would get up early in the morning and just sit on the porch watching them come and go as they chattered back and forth. I noticed one of the branches where they perched was going to be a good spot as the sun starting up. I set up my camera where I could get some of the blue sky in the background. I used some fill flash to try to get some of the shadows but not over power.
I have to thank my mother in-law for making up the special solution. It was my job to keep the feeders filled as they buzzed around me with in inches.
