About This Image

fountain dancing hummingbird, with a water droplet on her head.
captured from open front window with telephoto lens. Kindof hard to do, as the lens wants to focus on everything but the hummer :) - but am getting there.

thanks very much, Bernie in NZ and Don for the nice comments. The blue background flowers are the Johnson's Blue (true) Geraniums, or Cranesbill, which hang over the wall into the lily pond, where the fountain is.

Another great hummer capture Alandra! I really like the background colors and the water. Super work! Don

This is so cute. They are very colourful birds aren't they, and they obviously love to play. You must have so much fun photographing them. You captured it brilliantly..

that's a lovely compliment, thankyou Lorraine. We do get such a lot of happiness from these little birds, as everyone does who feeds them each summer, -- very entertaining, they are so small but very feisty, they go after lots of the other garden birds :) who move outof the way fast when they see that long beak coming!

This is fantastic, I wish we had these little birds here.
