I recently spent some time shooting hummingbirds. These are the Ruby Throated hummingbirds that are common around our cottage. Their pretty green feathers just sparkle in the sun. Whether perched or flying, I just get so much enjoyment out of these little beauties. The make me laugh when they buzz around my head on their way to the feeders.
They're a busy, ever moving target, so I was thrilled to catch two in the same shot in these next couple of photos!
Both of these shots show a couple of females. They don't have the ruby throat that the name suggests.
Even the shadow is pretty cool!
This shot really shows off that beautiful ruby throat of the male.
And finally, three of my favourite shots of this pretty little female in flight, the last with Kim Klassen's new texture, "Culligan Scripted":
